Local(ish) sources are your best bet. International shipping alone is likely to exceed $50-$70.

Do you have a local equivalent to Ebay or Craigslist?

Have a look around among the Indian Amateur Radio  sites.
There may be a Hamfest coming up near you.
Indian "hams" are well known for their interest in "hands on" Electronics,so there may well be a reasonable unit at one of these occasions.
Most "hams" are nice guys,so you might even score a "loaner" for the duration of your course! :)

Back in the day,there was a sizable Electronics industry in India,so there may have been,(or still be) a local
manufacturer of Oscilloscopes.
If so,the local ones will probably be cheaper than Tektronix etc.

Hope you find a good one!

Deve Sir,
 
         it is an honor for me that you take a look of my request.

we have sites like ebay but they did't deal in electronics .

actually i m just a student , and in india buying a oscilloscope is really big deal

Thank you

Unless someone willing to donate and send you one for free, don't mean to rain your parade, I'm afraid your expectation on the price is too low even for a really old, used but working scope.

Just google around, I believe you will find even a totally broken or not working properly scope, or worst sometimes only certain important parts might cost near or more than $50.

Especially if the scope originated from outside India or from different continent, I really doubt with that budget will be enough to cover even the shipping cost,  especially the old one, this thing is usually very fragile, big & heavy and needs "serious packaging" and handling before shipping it out.

Agree with above vk6zgo's suggestion, with that budget, its better and "more realistic "for you to look for "loaner" locally.

Especially the <= 50MHz models can often picked up for less than $50, but your point about shipping still stands.

Yes, shipping is the killer.
Stuff like scopes must really be sourced locally if you are going to get a good deal.
So Gaurav, I'm afraid that you will have to ask on some local forum for best advice on this.
Sometimes universities and colleges gives old scopes away or sell them cheaply.
