Indian Developers Can Now Sell Paid Apps In Google Play

Google has added India to a list of countries from which developers can create and sell apps in Google Play.

Prior to being added to this list, Indian developers were limited to distributing apps for free or finding workarounds. TheHindu.com has more: “Until now, developers were figuring out ways to circumvent the restriction. In some cases, this meant having to travel to the U.S. to create a local bank account there in the name of relatives and friends or even floating a company there for this purpose.”

Countries that are allowed to charge for apps in Google Play are mainly in Western, except for a few countries in the Asia Pacific region. As TechTree.com points out, while Hong Kong is on the list, China is not yet able to sell apps through Google Play.
