Because KDP-Print books are only available in U.S., Europe and Japan, as is explained in the documentation.

How do i make the paperback available in India ?

Find an Indian POD company, publish it yourself and list it on Amazon/IN, as other Indian authors claim they have done.

Please help me out..

If your CreateSpace paperback were available on the IN store, the price would probably be so high as to discourage any purchases. You'll just have to wait until the day when Amazon finds a reputable POD printer there, and a separate pricing system. The latter, especially, will be an obstacle. I have seen this in China with one of my books. In hardcover, with dust jacket, it sells for about half what the paperback did in the US.

(Don't trust KDP to publish a print edition. Don't trust CreateSpace to publish an ebook.)

Good luck! -- NJ
