I don't know, but is your Indian service provider on the same UMTS bands as the device you bought? There are two different model version of the 9700, each one has different 3G bands.

Who is your 9700 branded... what is the vendor ID
On the homscreen, press ALT + rightShift + H.
Top line, what is the Vendor ID?

And who is your service provider in India?

Then compare the two carriers to see if they both have the same bandwidth for 3G.

RIM vendor 120 is Vodafone UK/Vodafone Netherlands

It should work fine, I don't know why it is not.
