No, I don't think it includes the Oil. Checked the attached PDF from Nikhil Oil charges are not mentioned there.

It would be better if we get the total service cost including the oil.

Oil cost was around 3.5k-4k. You can check the price on Amazon. Maybe 4.5k for 6 litres.... dont remember exactly.

Will the dealership allow you to take oil from outside? I have tried this in the past and got a firm no.

I also was told a clear 'no' when I enquired before my TSI 30k km service.
