Plasma is relatively new technology and you're less likely to get it under 30K price tag. Though some of the features of the plasma TV are easy to obtain with LED TV's with Smart Focus feature. Sony and Samsung offers that in some of their LED TV. So if you want cheap priced TV's with option closer to expensive plasma then those can be your best bet.

Here are some of the best affordable plasma TVs to check out.

1. LG 42PN4500 106 cm (42) Plasma TV : The TV is priced at 32K and most likely to be cheapest in the market. It has most common features found in HD ready TVs. Resolution is around 1024 x 768 which is good enough for the price.

2. Samsung 43H4900 109.22 cm (43) Plasma TV(HD Ready, 3D) : This product also has the 3D support which makes it attractive. It costs around 40k and the cheapest option so far. Though resolution wise it is not that big, and supports : 1024 x 768 only.

3. Samsung 51F5500 51" Plasma TV: This is full featured plasma TV with resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels at 51'' inches. It supports 3D and HD technologies. The price is 64000/- in online retail stores. The local stores may or may not be low at this price.

4. Panasonic TH- P50X50D 127 cm (50) : This is another HD ready plasma TV but a bit pricey. The retail price is around 75,000. You'll find some competitive features in this model.

I'd say try to buy the TV from local store so that the returns and the model issue doesn't create any form of problems. Also make sure that you check amazon and snapdeal for the price and compare them with local store and then decide accordingly.

Well, to be frank enough, plasma TVs do not come at a cheaper price. They will cost you an amount upwards from Rs. 30000. If you are ready to shell out that much of an amount, here are few choices -

1. LG 42PN4500
It has a resolution of 1024x768 pixels. The TV is a HD one. The screen size is 42 inches. It does have HDMI and USB compatibility. Yiu have 5 sound and 8 video modes. The price is Rs. 34998 on SnapDeal. It offers attractive EMI options on HDFC and ICICI Bank cards.

2. SAMSUNG JOY 43F4100
This 43 inch plasma TV has a resolution of 852x480. You can buy it from Amazon for Rs. 32850. SnapDeal sells it at Rs.34000. The plasma TV has HyperReal picture engine. It does support Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby Pulse.

3. SAMSUNG 43F4900
This is yet another 43 inch plasma TV from Samsung. It comes with a resolution of 1024x768. Amazon is selling it for Rs. 37000. It sports a HyperReal picture engine. With support for Dolby Pulse and Dolby Digital Plus.

Samsung has many models in the 43 inch range within a price range of Rs. 35 to 40000. You may choose any of them. I would advice you to go through the price comparison sites to gain a clear understanding of the price differences across stores.
And finally, there are a few LED TVs from reputed manufacturers which almost emulate what you get on a Plasma. It would be better to visit a local store to differentiate between the two technologies before deciding on a particular model.
As.for your question on whether to opt for a local store or online store, I would prefer a local store for purchasing a TV. It would be better to handle repair/ warranty related issues later. Also you are likely to get better prices. However, have a comparison on the online stores ready with you as it would help you negotiate the price.
