    Dear Gagan sir I bought LXI Maruti from Pankaj Automobile Faridkot . I paid all expenses as per norms. Compant said this is our duty to get it sanction from depot you have to pay Rs. 4000/- as processing charges etc. It may be our convenience or save time and all burden so, Company deposited my documents alongwith Demand draft for Rs. 4,78278/- /-on 14.7.2014 with CSD Depot Bhatinda which I have read on documents when I signed in CSD depot.. Company asks for 511285/- as CSD rate and other like Insurance and registration fee separately, I want to know what is the CSD price really to pay for.
