I live in Kolkata, India.

I have a Parker Frontier Matte Black fountain pen which has been a longtime favourite! Recently its nib got destroyed as it fell from my table . I do not want to buy a new one as this particular one has many fond memories attached to it. Will appreciate if anybody tells me how or where do I get a spare nib for this particular pen, preferrably in golden/dual colour?

Ask your local PARKER/Luxor distributior.

Luxor does provide spare sections and nibs for frontier.

Seeing that the indian frontiers retail for $8, it may not make sense to buy from outside India. Subbu_Asa(thats a nice addition) suggested the best option.

I checked with Luxor website. They have only spare Vector and Beta sections not for Frontier. I wanted to replace the nib for an old Sonnet we found in my in-laws' place that has similar nib but in vain.

Sonnet is a modern pen and its nib/nib sections are available. You may check with your local Parker dealer.

the sonnets we got are something like 10 plus years old and Sonnet nib units cost like £30. As Frontier Matt nibs fit the Sonnet (I have one and tried on Sonnet) I thought getting a nib in India would be cheaper as pen itself costs only  INR 600 or so. Buying a couple of Frontier from Luxor with gold finish and discarding the pen after taking off the nibs is cheaper than original Sonnet nibs. Frontier nib is quite good as compared to my Insignia.

I think there is an exclusive Luxor showroom in South City Mall, Prince Anwar Shah Rd. Call and check.

Gem and Co, Chennai has spares, asking price Rs.250/- , you may call and check

Still, ask Luxor, I have seen spares.
