sell a car in India (or Nepal or Pakistan)
I am toying with the idea of driving by car to India and to sell the car there.
The question if it is administratively possible to transfer the car was asked in this post but not answered
and besides my question is slightly different.
I have driven to West Africa and sold my car there and I just liked the way of travelling.
I went through the post of the last too years in the South Asia Section of this forum and was astonished that nobody considered to sell his or her car in India, Pakistan or Nepal, is it such a stupid idea?
I have 3 groups of questions:
1. Is it common for travellers to sell their car in either India, Pakistan or Nepal. Which country is the easiest. I am aware that quite some cars used to be exported to Nepal but this business stopped apparently.
2. As I mentioned in the first sentence selling in India would be most convenient for me. How expensive is it to import the car legally to India, in order to break it down for the parts or register it afterwards?
3. Lets assume it is possible to sell in India (lets forget for a moment about the carnet de passage and other admin stuff):
a. which car (available in Europe) is easiest to sell. I am planning on a normal saloon car.
b. Which mini bus is easiest to sell (Is it true that Tata bought the plans for the Mercedes 207 and is still producing them?)
c. To answer this question it would be useful to have some stats on the brands and types of vehicles registered in India. Is anybody aware of a source for these kind of statistics?
