you could've mentioned your budget anyway! we Indians are more concerned about budget. whatever we plan the first thing comes in our mind is "budget" :-P
If you are thinking of buying a bass guitar surely you should give more importance to the tone and taste! never go for givson and gba too!
Check for these brands if available in your place
Yamaha, Fender Squier, Ibanez, ESP LTD Series, Dean, Rogue Electric Bass, and anything left guys??
from these series Pick which suits your budget.
