This is about buying author copies in India and pricing:
1. I tried to buy author copies. I live in Chennai, Tamilnadu, India. I request you to facilitate buying through amazon.in so that I pay in indian currency.
2. This is about pricing. My book, 'Philosophy of Peninsular India' is about two Indian classics. I expect more interest for the book here,in India. So I suggest that an Indian price may also be fixed for the book.
Thanking you,
Regards,

Your book is priced at 150 rupees on the IN store. If you want a lower price, you can set it lower.

If you want a paperback, you must either publish through CreateSpace or have it printed locally and offer it on amazon.in as a vendor yourself. KDP Print Beta books are not sold on the IN store, nor the CA, CN, and AU stores. Only CreateSpace's "expanded distribution" option will get you on those platforms.

(Don't trust KDP to publish a print edition. Don't trust CreateSpace to publish an ebook. Each does one thing well and the other thing poorly.)

Good luck! -- NJ
