Try any one of the numerous stationery / packing material shops in Ravivar Peth or Bohri Alee (lane). Another place you could try is Carax Auto Accessories store (http://www.carax.in/) - they are authorized dealers for 3M products.

well i have normal double sided tape but its not good enough for body cladding.

that's why t want 3m's scotch brand tape.

the accessories shop charge 200 for sticking single piece of cladding . (its around 2 ft)

i think the full tape it self costs around 300 bucks, tight?

Jeepster,
What a coincidence! Just yesterday I bought a roll of 3M tape to stick the same claddings on my Bolero.
Here in Bangalore, 3M double side sticker costs 250 bucks (the bigger roll).

Hi Jeepster,

If you want only 3M Ask for VHB 4956(0.5mm thick ) or 4922(1mm), both are available from 6 mm to 25 mm in width, for your usage 8 mm is sufficient, for proper bonding u have to buy scotch VHB primer, you can try with a Aluminium structural glazing contractors are Glass dealers,

Primer gives extra adhesive power to the tape. and it is not a paint primer its a special chemicle they call it as primer. paint part i don't know because we use this to stick glass to aluminium sections and all our sections are anodized and we normally avoid sticking the glass to painted surface.

yes that's the one i was talking about.
it costs 200 to fix single piece of the cladding here & the whole tape it self costs 250. (think about the profit)
