Thanks & Regards,
This phone is 100% carrier unlocked as stated before in numerous threads. It doesn't matter where you buy it, it will always be carrier unlocked!
If you said that other users have reported using the Nexus 5 with the same carrier as the one you are trying to use in India then its one of 2 things that may cause it not to work. Either they are using the D821 model or the D820 (At&t, Sprint, T-Mobile) model or it can be that you forgot to setup your APN to work for the new carrier.
