Add to the fact that China has strong incentives for electric cars.

TESLA delays its India plans. Attributed the delay to navigating the local regulations regarding importations versus domestic manufacturing

but they actually assumed that Tesla would open a factory in India in order to sell cars in the country, but like almost all markets outside the US, Tesla first planned to import vehicles.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk said that Tesla had plans to enter the country last year, but those plans have been delayed.
It followed some confusion over Tesla’s ability to even import its vehicles in India that came to light earlier this year.

What Elon Musk wants
: It sounds like the company would like a deal to be able to import its electric vehicles without penalties until they can produce them in the country with a new factory.
