This is going to be my very post at Team BHP.
I would like to start my journey on this forum with a few pictures of my latest acquisition, 2005 Ex Army Maruti Gypsy King. It was purchased from Auto Attitudes in May 2020.
She has a few performance mods such as K&N air filter, header and bigger radiator with electronic fan.
Air conditioning has also been installed.
In the interior we have JBR recliner racing seats and a blaupunkt music system.

And here are some pictures-
Hi Akash,

Congratulations on your acquisition. Wanted to know. Is the metal sheet welded to the footwell? What about the drain holes?

Thank you. Yes sir, the metal sheet is welded in the footwell.
And there are no drain holes in the metal sheet. There is some space on the sides which lets the water escape.

Congratulations I have seem some very cool Gypsies on the Auto Attitudes Instagram page.
Can you share details about the price and legality of your Gypsy?
If it's a 2005 model, won't it be illegal to drive in Noida/ Delhi?

Sir, my Gypsy is 2005 ex army, registered in 2016. It's RC is valid till 2031. What the authorities check is the RC, insurance and the PUC which I keep with me at all times. Till now, I haven't faced a single issue even though I was stopped once at DND. They just checked the documents and let me go.
And for the price you an PM me

I am no Sir . I sent a message to Auto Attitudes as well, asking them how it was done. They were kind enough to respond and let me know that they use rivets and then use some sort of bond to conceal on all slides.

Your Gypsy looks great. Do keep sharing updates.

Really sorry for the misinformation. I felt the sides were welded to the footwell as I have seen in many other cars.

Thank you for clearing that out

Thanks for your reply. But the rule is on the years of the car , not registration of the car. Hence my question.
Or does it not matter if it's registered in Punjab?
Refer to this (July 2016: NGT tells Delhi to deregister all Diesel Vehicles over 10 years old) thread.

The NGT rule is restricted to Delhi NCR only. As Patiala, Punjab is not a part of NCR, they can issue fitness to ex-army vehicles. This is what I know about this rule.
Please do let me know if you think that there might be some hidden clause in this rule.
