Hi Brinda you have done a great job.  Just a few corrections. I hope Aisha you dont mind me doing it?

1. Padaega :  You should just say jaana hai ( padaega implies 'have to' )

2. achi gaadiyan a/c ke sath milega? :  gaadi since you need only one. and  'milegi' since feminine.  Remember most words that have 'ee' sound in it are feminine generally.

more follows......

3. Pilani pahunchney ke liye kitna samay honge? :  not honge but 'lagega' 
(Kab Hum Pilani pahunch sakthe hain?)    : hum Pilani kab pahunchenge?
 
4. Kitna paisa dena hai?  :  Kitna bhada (i.e. rent) or kitna paisa hoga?

5. Aap bahuth jyadha kahthe hain.  : kahrahe ho ( are saying)


more follows....

6. Mein kuch kami (fare?) dekh rahi hoon. :   Mein kuch kam daam wali gaadi dekh rahi hun. (I am looking for a cheaper vehicle)

7. Gaadi kahan hai? woh achi hai na?  : woh achi condition mein hai na? (Indian people speak more Hinglish than pure hindi which is found most in MP) 

 
more follows.....

8. Muje rasthe mei koi samasya bhi nahi hona chahthi hai. : Muje rasthe mei koi samasya nahi hona  chahiai
Kya aap iske pahale Pilani jaathe hain? : Pilani jaye hain? 

9. Kya rastha achi hai ? (accha since rasta is masculine!) 

more follows....

10 Muje wahan cheh baje ke saamne pahunchna padaega.:  pahale i.e before (saamne means in front of)                 padaega  again implies ‘have to’ so say 'pahunchana hai' 

But all in all great try!!!!

Thanks Natasha for pointing out my mistakes .This will definitely help me to improve my fluency.
