Laws Regarding Handling Charges On Purchase Of Car

During the purchase of a new car, my dealer is charging Rs 3000 as handling charges. The dealer insists that this is legal, but my understanding is that this is not legal. Can you please advise the law in this regard?

Usually, this results in the car/two wheeler company asking dealers to waive off handling charges. Many buyers are unaware that handling charges are illegal, and end up paying large amounts of money as handling charges. In case of luxury cars, these charges can go up to Rs. 50,000, or even more.
