I already requested my SE to arrange for PDI at the yard. One VIN was already assigned to my invoice. On PDI day another executive of India garage accompanied me to their yard and PDI done and satisfied with the car.
Some noise observed while opening the tail gate, that seems to be the unlocking noise which comes when we press the tail gate opening button.
After PDI we returned back and signed RTO documents. Discount and freebies:
1. On the ex-showroom price got 30,000 cash discount + 10K corporate discount
(good to get the discount on ex-showroom so RTO charges too will come down)
2. Chiddu discount of 40,000 (on Road)
3. Insurance reduced to 33,000 (comprehensive TATA AIG)
4. Accessories worth 5000 free.
