I know you read my trip report from 2008
Our driver Ramchandra was excellent. Several other IMers also went with him and they had nothing but good things to say about him.
You search for his latest phone number in the forum, I don't know if the one I mentioned still works for him.
I also do not know what cars he has.

You dont need Xylo for Kinnaur trip since roads are in good condition in Kinnaur
Xylo may be required if you travel further to Kaza since road detoriates further in Spiti

For my trip to Kinnaur in February last month,i initially talked to Ramchandra but he was reluctant to travel to Kinnaur at that time of year because of extreme weather and snow but he arranged an Innova and the driver was Monu

Monu is having partnership with Ramchandra and he is brave enough to travel to Kinnaur and Kaza any time of year

Monu was hired by Jaypee power projects in Kinnaur for 8 years and he did hundreds of trip to Kinnaur transporting Engineers to the project site and back so Monu can be trusted for experience in hill-driving in Tribal areas of Himachal

Cheers

I would agree with Mohd Rashid's remarks that Ramchandra would be unwilling to travel when there is a good chance of getting stuck or otherwise any danger. He is a very cautious person and drove with the utmost care. If traveling with family, these are good attributes
He cautioned us many times about the hotel(no hotels open in first week of april) and road situation in Spiti before we started our journey. Only once he was convinced that we would manage somehow and was not looking for comfort, he went ahead and drove us to Spiti. And he was absolutely on the mark about the ground situation there.

I am getting rate of Rs. 3200/- to Rs. 3500/- plus toll for an Innova. Is it reasonable?

We were a family of 4 and took the services of Davender (09805167583). He was a nice man & co-operative.
We visited the Kinnaur circuit from Shimla.
You can try him.

It was a Indica & in very good condition. We didnt had any issue with it while travelling.

If you need a bigger car, you can get in touch with him for reference.
