For that you would need to know the vehicle inside out?

Depends on the thickness of the rotor, not the number of kilometres run. It should be written in the service manual of the Esteem (service manuals are only available to Maruti and MASS employees/staff unless you can manage to find one for yourself).

Point.

The MASS - SA and all the other chaps there give "phree gyan" (Free knowledge) so meaning its a load of bull. You'd have to tell them very clearly else you will be taken for a ride (some of the time at least).

Kms clocked is only one factor in the equation. Its like asking how long clutch will last. Depends on the driving style. Yes 60k kms a visit to the lathe will help and perhaps you can do it once more.

A simple way to calculate is to see how many set of pads you have changed and how frequently. A worn pad can ruin the rotors.

I've changed rotors on my Zen (now sold) @ 95k Kms was too worn out to be "machined" again.

Can i buy and fix this myself and how much would it cost ? is it OK to drive the car with IAT sensor kaput?
The IAT sensor should cost you around 1.8K.

And yes, you can fix it yourself easily
