Still better would be:
Elone Maska, i.e. Elone Butter because Maska means butter in Hindi.
So, ईलोन मस्का.
He is welcome though.@elonmusk

Meanwhile, as per the latest report by The Economic Times, Tesla, under the leadership of Elon Musk, is on the brink of entering the Indian market.

The government is reportedly in the process of finalizing a policy to extend concessional import duties on electric cars priced above Rs 30 lakh for 2-3 years.

Import Duty

India imposes a 100 percent import duty on cars valued at more than Rs 33 lakh and 60 percent for cars below that threshold. Tesla has shown interest in investing up to $2 billion in India, contingent upon the government reducing the import duty of 15 percent on foreign electric vehicles during the initial years of operation.
