Hello Sagar Sharma !!

High cost of ownership means the overll expenditures done for the car. Right from buying car and maintaining the same. Compared to cars manufactured in India, the mainteance of other cars costs more because of higher cost of spares, consumables, cost of labour per hour and so on. Lower priced cars have comparatively lower price spares also. Hence overall maitnenance would be cheap. Besides that, the frequency of maintenance repairs also matters and is indicative of quality of the car.
