I checked in the Palio 1.6 Owner's Manual (Page 143), which says

Medium Load
Front - 19 Rear - 1.9

Full Load
Front - 2.2 Rear - 2.2

Spare - 2.2

I maintain 29 in from and Rear but dealer said 28 at front and 30 at rear.

Naah. It can actually be bad. It doesn't serve purpose when you drive in city with light load. It is over-inflated. While if you take it out on highway with high load, it is under-inflated. So, either ways it doesn't serve purpose. Better is maintain right pressure. I use my car mostly alone during weekdays, so I should be maintaining 28 PSI.
