HOW TO BUY AT PUNDOLE’S

Pundole’s auctions are open to the public during preview. Clients who are

registered with us are welcome to attend our auctions. Each sale will have

a catalogue available to view online approximately 3 weeks before the

sale. Printed catalogues will be available for select sales approximately

2 weeks before the sale. Both the online and printed versions provide

detailed descriptions and estimates for each lot, but we strongly encourage

prospective buyers to inspect all lots they are interested in, in person, before

the sale. If this is not possible, please contact us to request a condition

report.

A more detailed explanation of our registration and bidding requirements is

provided below.

All property sold at Pundole’s is subject to the Terms and Conditions of Sale

printed in the catalogue. Please familiarise yourself with them as they will

facilitate the sale process.

PROCESS

Viewing Works

All works will be on view prior to the sale. Bidders are encouraged to view

the works in person and discuss the condition with a representative from

Pundole’s. Written condition reports are also available upon request. Please

ensure that you request a condition report from Pundole’s on the lots that

may be of interest, prior to the sale. Condition Reports broadly will provide

details and information to the best of Pundole’s abilities, and Pundole’s

cannot be held liable for any information that is erroneously provided or not

mentioned. These reports have not been done by trained conservators. We

encourage you to get an additional professional assessment should you

need. Condition reports will broadly state the physical and visible, damaged

and restored areas of the artwork. If there is an area specifically mentioned, it

does not exclude other similar areas, and if there is a problem not mentioned,

it does not mean that they do not exist. Any statement by Pundole’s does not

constitute a representation, warranty or assumption of liability by Pundole’s

of any kind.

Auction

The sale will be conducted in Indian Rupees.

All works have a price range or estimate indicated in the catalogue. The

estimate is the value assigned by Pundole’s to each work, keeping in mind

comparable market examples for objects and the artists’ larger body of work

for art works. Estimates are only indicative prices, and do not include buyer’s

premium or any taxes, which will be additional. All catalogue descriptions are

made to the best of Pundole’s knowledge, and are their opinion.

All works are sold subject to a reserve unless specifically indicated

otherwise. The reserve is the minimum price at which the consignor has

agreed to sell the work at, and in no case will exceed the low estimate of

a work. All reserves are kept confidential. Therefore, any bids below the

reserve will not be considered by the auctioneer to be a ‘selling price’.

Lots are usually opened for bidding below the low estimate, and increased in

increments of approximately 10%. Any absentee bids that do not meet a

standard bidding increment will be rounded down to the previous one. All

increments are solely at the discretion of the auctioneer.

Buyer’s Premium and Government Taxes

The final price payable for every lot will be the Hammer Price (the price at

which the auctioneer’s hammer falls) plus a Buyer’s Premium of 15%, plus

applicable Goods and Services Tax (GST) and import duties, as described

below.

All works are subject to a 15% Buyer’s Premium which will be added to the

Hammer Price of each sold lot. This 15% Buyer’s Premium will be subject

to applicable GST at 18%. (Taxes are subject to changes and revisions.)

All works will be subject to a 12% GST on the Hammer Price of each

work (excluding the Buyer’s Premium). (Taxes are subject to changes and

revisions.)

For works that have been imported into India (marked with a # in the

catalogue), an import duty of 11% (or as applicable at the time of payment)

on the hammer price will be applicable. A GST of 12% will be charged on the

total amount of the hammer price plus the import duty of 11% (or as

applicable at the time of payment).

POST SALE

Payment

All successful bidders will need to put down a deposit of ten percent of the

hammer price, either in cash or cheque or by bank transfer to guarantee their

purchase. Non-payment of all balance payments within fourteen days post

the sale may lead to forfeiture of the deposit.

All buyers will be responsible for all duties and taxes payable as a result of the

sale of the lot.

Two separate Proforma Invoices will be sent by email to the address

indicated on the registration form and on the email address provided. One

proforma invoice for the hammer price plus the GST and the second for

the buyer’s premium plus the GST. Any change to the invoicing name or

address as given on the registration form should be communicated to

accounts@pundoles.com within 48 hours of the auction. Two separate final

invoices will be raised for all purchases as stated here.

Payment should be made to Pundole’s within 14 days of the receipt of the

proforma invoice. Payment will only be accepted from the same party as

indicated on the invoice.

Payment will be accepted through cheques, wire transfers and demand drafts.

International buyers can pay through wire transfers. Invoices will be raised in

Indian Rupees. International buyers who have wire transferred money from

an overseas bank account can be exempt from paying GST and import duty

(only for applicable lots) on the hammer price if the work is directly exported

by Pundole’s through a licensed shipper, with the appropriate and required

documentation. GST will still be applicable on the buyer’s premium, even if

the lot is exported out of the country.

Cheques and demand drafts to be made out to Pundole’s. Cheques should

be drawn on a local Mumbai bank account only. For outstation payments,

only demand drafts shall be accepted, payable in Mumbai.

All payments can be sent to:

Pundole’s

8 J.N. Heredia Marg

Ballard Estate

Mumbai 400 038

Collection and Shipping

Pundole’s can arrange for local delivery in Mumbai and shipping within

India and internationally at the buyer’s expense. All quotes will be on a

Cost Insurance Freight (CIF) basis unless instructed otherwise. If Pundole’s

organises delivery even within Mumbai, transit insurance will be mandatory.

Shipping instructions should be clearly completed on the form provided with

the invoice, and should be sent back at the earliest. Shipping estimates are

available on request. Please contact shipping@pundoles.com for more

information. Any purchased lots not collected or shipped within 14 days of

the auction will be moved to professional storage, at the buyer’s expense.

Local buyers who have purchased lots imported into India will be obliged

to settle all invoices, including import duty, GST, etc. before such lots can

be released from a Free Trade Warehousing Zone for free circulation within

India.

All lots that have been imported into India (marked with a #) have been stored

in a Free Trade Warehousing Zone. These lots will be cleared and released for

free circulation within India from the FTWZ upon payment of customs duty

@ 11% (or as applicable at time of payment) to Pundole’s.

Shipping for all lots imported into India will only be arranged by Pundole’s on

behalf of the buyer. All packing, shipping, insurance and related expenses will

be borne by the buyer.

International buyers who have wire transferred money from an overseas

bank account can be exempt from paying GST and import duty on the

hammer price if the work is directly exported by Pundole’s through a licensed

shipper, with the appropriate and required documentation. GST will still be

applicable on the buyer’s premium, even if the lot is exported out of the

country.

All items that are either Registered with the Archaeological Survey of India,

or, are over one hundred years old, or, are National Treasures whether

specifically indicated in the catalogue or otherwise cannot be exported out

of India. Pundole’s have taken all efforts to determine such lots but do not

take responsibility for any lack of information or oversight.

Any works exported from India will be done in compliance with the export

and foreign exchange laws of the country. Similarly, when importing works

into a country, buyers should check on any import restrictions or applicable

duties before confirming a shipping location. While Pundole’s will assist

with both shipping and export, it is the buyer’s responsibility to be aware of

all import and export regulations and obtain any necessary licenses or

permissions.

All purchases must be collected or shipped within 28 days of the auction,

subject to the registration process. No works will be delivered or shipped

before all payments for purchases, shipping and insurance have been

completed. Pundole’s reserves the right to cancel a sale if payment is not

received within 45 days of the auction.

For any inquiries, please contact Khorshed Pundole at

khorshed@pundoles.com

Registering Antiquities

For all works in the auction that are registered with the Archaeological

Survey of India, the buyer will be required to follow the process of transferring

ownership from the seller to their name.

certificate will need to be one and the same.

Once payment has been received in full by Pundole’s, the transfer process

can begin. The property will remain with Pundole’s for the duration of the

transfer process, and will be handed over to the buyer upon completion.

As agent for the seller, Pundole’s is obligated to ensure that the registration

and transfer process are completed in accordance with the Antiquities and

Art Treasures Act, 1972.

Pundole’s will not be responsible for any delays in the registration or transfer

process. While Pundole’s will assist with the process, buyers are solely

responsible for communicating with the ASI and ensuring that the

Registration Certificate is received by them safely and accurately.

All charges, if any, associated with the registration and transfer process will

be borne by the buyer.

It is recommended that buyers familiarise themselves with the Antiquities

and Art Treasures Act, 1972. For further information, please contact
