    Sorry for high jacking this thread as I am on the same situation as Vineet, so don't want to waste another thread.
    Where is the warranty info in paytm link?

    No problem in hijacking!
    As paytm is not responsible for any warranty claims, they wouldn't put it on their site. The seller ("ECON SALES" in your link) will provide you the bill which would be required in case of warranty claim. One would simply have to show the bill to sony service center representatives. Same rules as buying from any site.
    In description, the origin says "India", so you must get the warranty without any problem. However, it would be better to confirm the same with ECON SALES or payTM customer care, just to be very sure.

    Hi! thanks Vineet :)
    I mean on that page there is no mentioning of manufacturer warranty anywhere unlike all other products sold in paytm
    There are some imported dubai PS4 slim 500GB on ebay with no or seller warranty for just 21k (with promo code)

    yes, the ebay one doesn't come with warranty as its imported by seller. But the one on paytm is Indian and should have warranty:

    well, you should confirm with payTM customer care, just to be more sure, before buying :)

    I know they have written India but I am not sure of authorised manufacturer warranty as recently I bought a 2.1A charger from sony for Rs.700 through snapdeal (they wrote manufacturer warranty of 6 months) and somehow it stopped charging in 5 months. I went to authorised service centre and found out that this product is not under authorised warranty as per serial code, engineer said please talk snapdeal regarding this. I talked snapdeal and they said they will provide me refund but later they declined as seller refused to believe that. I feel cheated that I wasted Rs. 700. Since then I am very sceptical for sony products.

    Thanks for sharing your experience!
    Well, for expensive purchases like these, Its better to rely on sony store, amazon.com, flipkart instead of snapdeal or paytm. (Specially snapdeal!). Pay some extra but atleast it would be worth it ;)

    Yeah! snapdeal is cheater. Flipkart is selling PS4 1TB with media warranty that looks like some seller warranty. So cant rely on them either.

    What about this seller from ebay who calming to provide invoice with sony india warranty? I need two controllers and this looks like great deal with coupon code that deducts 9% through debit card payment. Final price would be 27k bundled with 2 controllers.

    ^^ looks good to me, but not sure why the extra controller is going to be outside the console box:

    KINDLY NOTE : THIS PRODUCT COMES WITH 1 CONTROLLER INSIDE THE PACK AND 1 FREE EXTRA CONTROLLER WHICH SHALL BE PACKED WITH THE BOX OUTSIDE!!

    The extra DS4 controller bundle released by Sony has both the controllers inside the box, not outside.
    Maybe the bundle would be standard one (PS4 slim with one DS4 controller), and a Dualshock 3 controller outside? There is hardly any difference between a DS3 and DS4 controller though. Maybe you would like to check this out with the seller first?

    If I were you, I would pay the extra 2k and buy it from amazon (PS4 500GB Slim with Additional DS4: Playstation 4: Amazon.in: Video Games) for complete peace of mind.

    Haha! no they are shipping with DS4 v2 not the DS3 of PS3 :D
    Amazon was selling it for 27-28k few days ago, they raised to 29k now. There is comment in amazon that says: "The first time I opened the box the Extra DS4 was in another box but it was the Older Version of DS4 not the V2 which comes with every slim model now so keep that in mind when you consider buying this offer..."
