The balance payment is made at the time of actual delivery. The company provides free warranty for one year from date of purchase. The customer can purchase additional warranty for 3 years by paying an additional charge of 5000 rs. Local taxes are extra. There is a tax of 6.62 % on all hardware components. All software is taxed at 4%. Service tax of 2.12 % is collected on warranty support. If the customer wants to purchase through the call center, the customer care executive takes the customer details.
