If car is not having any technical trouble, you may well be required to spend close to 8000 - 10,000 rs - for oils & filter change
- Timing Belt needs replacement around 80K Kms - if its not replaced - you will be reqd to replace it
- Engine Oil, Oil Filter Change
- Air Filter, Throttle Body Cleaning
- Fuel Filter
- Brake & Clutch Fluid
- Axle Oil (Transmission Fluid)
- Brake overhaul
- Coolant Change
- Engine Decarbonizing - not reqd if previous owner is furnishing you service bills & performed oil & filter change.

Apart from it, check
- Tyre condition - is it worn out or need replacement - cost around 14,000 for set of 4 tyres
- Battery condition - does battery need replacement - cost around rs. 3000 for new battery
- Brake pads - cost around rs. 2000 - 2200
- Clutch Plate etc. - If clutch plate assembly needs replacement - cost around rs. 6000 approx
or any other technical part - cost according to it
It might well be required for replacement of these wear * tear items or may not require replacement at all

& then periodic maintenance will go on yearly / 10,000 kms basis - will cost around 3000 - 3500 including alignment, balancing, oil & filter change with paid labor.
