Your plan looks perfect and pretty relaxed @Vijayvardhan.

Important note: I have heard the immigration point at Phuntshokling (India-Bhutanb border) remains closed during Saturday and Sunday. Be sure to reach the place and get your entry in to Bhutan by Friday (Preferably early hours to avoid queue).

It will take one full day for the permit.
You can either go via agent or do it yourself. 

 

Stay near the visa office and visit the place early in the morning. 
Avoid it during weekends, Monday/Friday rush is high. 
Plan such a way that you reach visa office on Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday.

If at all, your plan is to do it anytime soon, I would recommend to postpone it by atleast 2 months. As per the updates we have received from Sikkim, It is undergoing a havoc due to continuous rain fall at the moment. Highest number of deaths, missing cases and landslides have been recorded this season. Anytime post September is recommendable as the situations would get better.

May i know what all the doc requirements for the border to be carried with us.

 

You need both vehicle documents and people documents.

 

Vehicle:
1. Original RC (Should be on drivers name)

2. Original License

3. Insurance

4. PUC

 

People:
1. Aadhar

2. Passport

3. 6 Passport size photos  

 

You need to go through the process where they will validate the vehicle. 
Followed by regular visa process. 

 

There are many agents available near the border or You can do it yourself.

I think, Voter ID is more than enough to enter Bhutan.
