I recently had my turbo repaired, and it cost me 7600. Mine is an indica turbo, which i believe uses the same engine and turbo as the TDI.
I got it from a TEL authorized service centre at maduravoyal, Chennai. They offered me a warranty as I opted for core replacement.
You can find a list of their dealers here Turbo Energy Ltd (TEL) - Authorised Service Centres
They also offered to just service it (my issue was oil leak, so changing the seals would have taken care of it) but since i am not planning to sell the car in the near future, asked them to overhaul it
9k is reasonable, as Tata quoted me 18K for a new turbo, and most of the TEL dealers had only remanufactured parts (Factory overhauled) for 10.5k
When you are buying, insist on a warranty. else you could end up with a scrap pudupet turbo!
If you are getting it serviced, make sure you get it done by an OEMauthorized service centre of the turbo (in my case TEL)
