Bodyshop and welding option is better and safe too. Just the chaps doing it should be aware what they are doing.

In their opinion the finish would be exactly similar to OEM level. The quote they have given is Rs 2,400.
We got this work done last week. It didn't take more than an hour and the finish is as good as OEM level.

The components highlighted in red are missing in the backrest frame of LXI. They are basically hollow tubes of height ~2 inches that support the headrest guide. These 4 parts were cut from a box tube and welded to the frame by the workshop folks.

Parts 1, 8 and 9 from the oriparts diagram need to be ordered one for each headrest. This is how it looks eventually -

All the way down

All the way up

Overall I am pretty satisfied with the work done and an important safety feature is now added to our car.

Thanks Shashi. The folks are quite experienced in interior overhauls and have worked on everything from Plymouths, Hudsons to most modern cars. They also do vintage/classic car restorations.
