If you are interested in what India is trying to do, you should look at their policy proposal from the last APNIC meeting in Busan.

I've been unable to get a straight and definite answer as to what parts of the policy are intended to be optional and/or mandatory and whether or not Indian ISPs would be allowed to opt out of their proposed global kill switch for Internet routing to/from India.
