Jolly Grant airport to Rishikesh, taxi only, approx Rs 600.... all the rest you can do by bus if so inclined, or shared taxi, bus is cheap obviously, shared taxi cost is per seat, i dont know what exactly, but hardly expensive, in the hundreds to Dev, same approx to Auli. Accommodation, well March is not yatra season so you'll have plenty of options at all prices and qualities.

D8: Tungnath - Chandrashila trek
D9: Chopta - ?????
D10: ?????? - haridwar
D11: Haridwar - Dehradun

few doubts
1. Will there be snow in Auli in March? Can i do skiing
2. What sort of accomodation will i get at Chopta? Heard there is no electricity? will it be cold in march? will we get hot water?
3. Any idea for Day 9 and 10

Should i hire a taxi through out Dehradun to Dehradun? or can i rely on shared taxis and busses for the entire stretch. What will be the cost of exclusive taxi and any driver reccomendation?

Your ??? - could be filled up with visit to Kanakchauri - Kartik Swamy temple.

Rishikesh to Joshimath or even Auli can be done in one long day travel. Else if you want to split it - make sure to go to the sangams and see things enroute to make the travel interesting rather than reaching the destination early and sitting in the hotel.

Almost three days in Rishikesh - make sure you have some plans for that stay - you can do quite a few things - but just be sure to plan it.

The itinerary seems okay apart from the above points to me.
Sar Pass Trek , Rohtang, Munnar, Badrinath Kedarnath, Vaishnodevi, Goa

According to my experience Rudraprayag, not Devaprayag ,is better place for accomodation , if you wish to break the journey .You can go to Joshimath or Auli directly by car ,

You can hire Taxi from Dehradoon to Dehradoon .
wealth I seek not hope nor love nor a friend to know me, all I ask the heaven above and the road below me .

It is important to add life in the years but not years to life
