We enter the story at the point where they have the property.

It is anecdotal. Just like all the other I-know-someone-who posts.

Now, that guy who is coming from USA, and wants a car....
Life gets aadhar every day.

I mentioned earlier that this topic was around already in the previous decade. Today I see from the thread list below that this came up again just 3 years ago:

Indeed, and the conclusion is the same: not legally possible.
"It is preferable to have a criminal for a servant rather than a fool because a criminal's actions are predictable and you can protect yourself against them, whereas there is no telling what a fool's next move will be.

You're right that a system should not be used for a purchase other than what it was designed for basically.

HOWEVER I emailed the Consulate of India in California about border runs on a 10 year tourist visa and there official reply was "there is no cooling off period" between the 6 month intervals.
