I am attaching a circular from the government that should give you some help and guidance on how to take your car to India from UAE. Two documents are attached: 1. Guidelines for issue of an excise duty concession certificate on purchase of cars by  physically handicapped persons. 2. Amendment to the guidelines for issue of excise duty concession certificate for purchase of vehicles by persons with disability - Dated April 21, 2016. When reading kindly be informed that effective April 21, 2016 new guidelines issued by the Government of India have done away with the requirement of a manufacturer’s certificate to avail the duty concession on cars for disabled. Now a certificate by the district road transport officer would suffice. 1. To view the guidelines document Click HERE 2.
