@ashishy, The cars seized by the banks will be placed in an Yard and will be resold to the consumers through agents. The Bank will cover its loan amount by the sale. Every bank has a collection department and they will have tie up with agents ( most of the time, its unofficial ). You can see the vehicles in the yard by obtaining the gate pass from the Bank.You have to purchase the car and get in registered with RTO ( if its not registered ). Normally, these cars are not eligible for loans. One has to make full cash payment and after the registration on to the buyer's name, Loan processing can be done.

Its a tedious job. But the deals we get are really great if we have direct contact with Bank officials. The agents in between make money by finding the buyer and quote higher price than what bank does. One doesn't have to feel bad for acquiring such cars since more often than not the vehicles are seized from fraudsters and habitual defaulters. I personally have seen one safari driven for an year under temporary registration. The only worry is such guys would have misused it or bad handled it. And even changed any spares.I feel Banks are not accomodative enough to allow the vehicles to be inspected by service centres or even take a TD. Thats the reason why they go through agents.

Some bank repossessed vehicles are listed in the file attached. This is for Pune and from HDFC.

As per this, they are expecting 6 lakh for Grand Vitara 2003 model... nowhere near realistic prices.
