The wiring + relay might have to be redone since in most indian cars the "fog lamps" are more of an visual accessory than anything else. (17w bulbs etc).

Secondly, the issue you might face is finding higher powered/130w bulbs that fit the foglamp sockets. (H2 etc... unlike the main beams H4s etc)

Lastly, given that you will be using the foglamps for flashing (i see no issues with extra heat etc) -- however, it might be a little inconvenient for flashing since the switch is not on the steering stalk like the high/low beam & flash.
