Terms & Conditions

TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE

The Terms and Conditions of Sale set out below explain the method by which
the seller and buyer will complete the transaction of buying an artwork through
Pundole's, and the terms each is bound by.

TERMS OF SALE

Unless specifically stated, Pundole's does not have a financial interest in any of
the property offered for sale. Pundole's only acts as an agent for the seller.

DESCRIPTION OF PROPERTY

Each auction will have a catalogue printed prior to the sale. Please read the
catalogue carefully for all details pertaining to the property offered.
All bidders are encouraged to examine the property offered for sale in person
prior to the sale. Information provided in the catalogue including the condition
report regarding authenticity, provenance, quality, or art historical relevance,
whether stated in the catalogue or communicated verbally constitutes an
opinion from Pundole's. Pundole's only take responsibility for the information
provided regarding the Author, name of the artist or basic description of the
property as stated in the opening line of each lot in capital letters. The
information in the catalogue and condition report is meant to help prospective
buyers, but is not exhaustive by any means, and all buyers are encouraged to
supplement that information through their own experts or other research.
Condition reports are available on request. 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.
Pundole's will provide details and information to the best of its abilities, and
cannot be held liable for any information that is erroneously provided or not
mentioned. Any statement by Pundole's does not constitute a representation,
warranty or assumption of liability by them of any kind.
Pundole's does not guarantee the frames, and all property will be sold 'as is'.
Estimates are only provided as indicative values to give buyers a general range of
the price we expect the work to sell for. It is not to be taken as a confirmed price
expected for the work.
Pundole's may withdraw any property before, during or after the auction if in its
opinion there is any issue regarding authenticity, ownership or any change to the
information provided for the artwork when it was consigned.

THE AUCTION

By bidding at a Pundole's auction, the bidder enters into an irrevocable offer to
buy the artwork that has been bid on. Should the bid be successful, the buyer
agrees to pay the hammer price plus the buyer's premium, all applicable taxes,
plus any additional charges relating to shipping, insurance, import-export
permissions and bank transfer fees.
In the event that a party is bidding on a third person's behalf, it is the party's
responsibility to ensure that all paperwork explaining the transaction and
relationship has been completed prior to the sale as per Pundole's registration
requirements.

All registration formalities, as outlined in the Registration/ Absentee Bids form
must be completed prior to the sale. Registration may be done on the day of the
sale as well, but as a banker's reference is needed, it would be ideal to complete
it beforehand. Photo identification will be required while collecting a paddle.
Paddles are given at Pundole's discretion, and bidders may be refused entry to
the auction or not allowed to bid at Pundole's discretion.
Absentee bids will be carried out by the auctioneer or a member of Pundole's
on behalf of the client. This service is offered free of charge, and Pundole's does
not accept any liability in the unlikely event that the bid is not executed or
executed incorrectly. In the event the auctioneer has two bids of identical values
and no higher bids are taken in the saleroom, the bid received on the earlier
date/time will be given preference. All absentee bids need a completed and
signed form (available at the back of the catalogue) in order for them to be
accepted.

Similarly, telephone bids can be arranged for clients unable to be in the
saleroom. Telephone bidding will be arranged subject to availability of Pundole's
staff so requests should be made as early as possible. This service is offered free
of charge, and Pundole's does not accept any liability in the unlikely event that
the telephone bid is not executed or executed incorrectly or the client has
been unreachable due to faulty telephone connections. Telephone bids may be
recorded.

Consignors may not bid on their own lots in the auction.
Pundole's employees and consultants may not bid in the sale unless a written
bid is submitted 72 hours prior to the start of the sale. They may not increase
that bid or bid on their own behalf in the room.

All works, unless specifically indicated otherwise, will be sold subject to a
reserve. The reserve is the minimum price at which the consignor has agreed to
sell the Property at, and in no case will exceed the low estimate of a Property.
All reserves are kept confidential. The auctioneer may open the bidding by
placing a bid on behalf of the seller. The auctioneer may continue to bid up until
the amount of the reserve, either by placing consecutive bids or by placing bids
in response to other bidders. In the event that neither an absentee bid nor a bid
in the room reaches the amount of the reserve, the auctioneer will 'pass' the
Property and it will remain unsold.

For all bids, the auctioneer's decision is final, and the auctioneer will have full
discretion to choose, accept or reject bids. While bidding increments will usually
increase by approximately 10%, the auctioneer has the discretion to break or
change the increments. In the event of a dispute, the auctioneer reserves the
right to re-offer the lot and determine the successful bidder for the lot.
The auctioneer will determine the successful and highest bidder for each lot.
The fall of the auctioneer's gavel shall confirm the close of each lot, and the
auctioneer will announce whether the lot has been sold or not. The successful
sale of each lot and the announcing of the successful paddle number also marks
a successful and irrevocable contract between the seller and buyer of the
artwork. The buyer accepts full responsibility to pay for the lot, as determined by
the final hammer price plus buyer's premium and all applicable taxes. Risk and
responsibility for the lot (including frame, glass and other breakable materials
where relevant) passes to the buyer at the expiration of fourteen calendar days
from the date of the sale or on collection by the buyer if earlier.

POST SALE

All invoices for purchases made in the sale will be sent to the name and address
as stated on the registration form. Any changes to this should be sent to
[email protected] or via written communication within 24 hours of the
sale being completed.

All successful bidders will require putting down a deposit of ten percent of the
hammer price, on completion of each session, either in cash or credit card
(subject to a fee of 1.5%) to guarantee their purchase. Non-payment of all
balance payments within fourteen days post the sale would lead to forfeiture of
the deposit.

Invoices will reflect the final amount payable for all lots purchased. The total
invoice price will be divided into two separate invoices and will include the
hammer price plus the buyer's premium, applicable taxes and import duty if
applicable.

The first invoice will include the hammer price plus import duty, if applicable,
and VAT (at the rate applicable on each object at the time of the auction).

The second invoice will include the buyer's premium (15% payable on hammer
price) plus 12.36% service tax (or as applicable at the time of the auction).
Invoices for packing, shipping, insurance and storage (if applicable), will be sent
separately.

In cases where it is applicable and all documentation has been submitted,
approved and duly stamped, CST may be substituted for VAT, but this will be
addressed on a case by case basis.

Payment should be made within 14 days of the sale. 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.

Shipping forms will be included with the invoices, and all shipping instructions,
whether local or international should be communicated to Pundole's within 14
days of the sale.

The transfer of title only happens after payment is received in full. At no point
is copyright transferred to the buyer.
All works can only be collected or shipped upon receipt of all dues, including
shipping charges.

Local buyers who have purchased lots imported into India will be obliged to
settle all invoices, including import duty, VAT, service tax 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 using the Pundole's Importer-
Exporter Code (IEC) upon payment of customs duty @ 10.3% (or as applicable
at the time of payment) to Pundole's.

Shipping for all lots imported into India or purchased under 'C' form exemptions
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.
Pundole's shall be entitled to retain all property sold in various lots to the same
purchaser, until amounts due to them from such purchaser have been received
in full. Subject to this the Buyer may collect the properties within the prescribed
time frame.

Shipping can be arranged by Pundole's for both local and international
shipments. In all cases, a third party will be used to pack, handle and ship the
goods to their final destination. The work will also be insured at the buyer's
expense while in transit. While Pundole's will use a reputed and experienced
art shipper, any mishap related to shipping and packing is not Pundole's
responsibility, and does not constitute part of the original contract between
the seller and the buyer.

If there is any loss or damage to the property of any nature whatsoever while
the property is in the possession of Pundole's or in transit the Buyer shall not
hold Pundole's responsible or liable for any such loss or damage and shall not
claim any sum whatsoever from Pundole's as costs, losses or damages. The
Buyer agrees that it shall accept the proceeds of an insurance claim that may be
settled/sanctioned by Pundole's insurance company by its policy in full and final
settlement.

International buyers who have wire transferred money from an overseas bank
account may be exempt from paying VAT 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. Service tax will still be applicable on
the buyer's premium, even if the lot is exported out of the country.

All purchases must be collected or shipped within 35 days of the auction.
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, it is the buyer's responsibility to 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.

Import / Export licenses may take considerable time to obtain. Payment to
Pundole's for the purchase of the artworks should not be held up because of
any shipping related issues. No sale may be cancelled due to lack of information
on export and import procedures.

All works as classified by the Government of India's Antiquities and Art
Treasures Act of 1972 as National Art Treasures, and, all property that is either
registered with the Archaeological Survey of India or over one hundred years
old is NON-EXPORTABLE and cannot be taken out of India. The works will be
subject to all local taxes.

All items that are registered with the Archaeological Survey of India, or 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.

All works deemed to be over one hundred years old, that are classified by the
Government of India and the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) as Antiquities
need to be registered with the office of the ASI. For works already registered,
the ASI requires that ownership be transferred into the new owner's name
post the auction. While Pundole's will assist with the process, all responsibility
to abide with the guidelines and rules as provided by the ASI is the sole
responsibility of the buyer. Please refer to the section titled REGISTERING
ANTIQUITIES in the 'How to Buy at Pundole's' section.

NON PAYMENT

If the buyer fails to make payment on any purchases within 14 days post the
auction, Pundole's has the right to take whatever action they deem necessary,
including legal proceedings to ensure that the contract between seller and
buyer is fulfilled. Late charges of 18% per annum will apply for any late payments,
storage charges at the rate of Rs.1,000/- per day per property and insurance at
the rate of 0.25% per month. Pundole's will give the buyer suitable notice, failing
which action will be taken, which may include cancelling the sale, re-offering the
property and restricting any further bidding in Pundole's auctions.
Pundole's has the right to have a lien on the purchases for which payment is due
until all outstanding dues are paid. Dues will be calculated based on the total
purchase price plus taxes and all charges related to shipping, insurance and
storage.

Pundole's has the right to re-offer the property through auction or private sale if
payment is not made by the original purchaser. In the event the property is
reoffered, the original buyer will have to bear any and all financial loss borne
through the process of reselling the work. This includes any monetary shortfall
between the original amount fetched at auction and the new price obtained at
resale as well as all losses related to commissions, premiums, shipping, insurance
and storage charges, legal fees, and all applicable taxes.
If the buyer fails to collect the Property or arrange for shipping within 14 days of
the sale, Pundole's will move the Property to storage and charge the buyer
storage and insurance charges that will have to be cleared prior to collection.

+91 98202 96510.

PROCESS

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.
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 taxes 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
Service Tax at 12.36%. (Taxes are subject to changes and revisions.)
All works will be charged a Value Added Tax will be applicable on the Hammer
Price of each work (excluding the Buyer's Premium). VAT will be charged at the
rate applicable on each object at the time of the auction.

For works that have been imported into India (marked with a # in the catalogue),
an import duty of 10.3% (or as applicable at the time of payment) on the
hammer price will be applicable. VAT for these particular lots will be charged
on the total amount of the hammer price plus the import duty.
Companies and other parties who are registered dealers outside of the state of
Maharashtra and eligible for 2% CST (instead of VAT) must provide Pundole's
with the required documentation and relevant forms.

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.

POST SALE

Shipping Terms

Shipping can be arranged by Pundole's for both local and international
shipments. In all cases, a third party will be used to pack, handle and ship the
goods to their final destination. The work will also be insured at the buyer's
expense while in transit. While Pundole's will use a reputed and experienced
art shipper, any mishap related to shipping and packing is not Pundole's
responsibility, and does not constitute part of the original contract between
the seller and the buyer.

Buyers Premium & Tax

All works are subject to a 10% Buyer's Premium which will be added to the Hammer Price of each sold lot. This 10% Buyer's Premium will be subject to Service Tax at 12.36%. (Taxes are subject to changes and revisions.)

A Value Added Tax will be applicable on the Hammer Price of each work (excluding the Buyer's Premium). VAT will be charged at the rate applicable on each object at the time of the auction.

Companies and other parties who are registered dealers outside of the state of Maharashtra and eligible for 2% CST (instead of VAT) must provide Pundole's with the required documentation and relevant forms.

Payment

Payment should be made to Pundole's within 14 days of the auction. 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. Pundole's reserves the right to cancel a sale if payment is not received within 14 days of the auction.
