The Google Play edition is said to be the Global GSM version, which should work in India. So it's up to you really. Whether you want 100% stock android from the Google Play version. Or stock android with some Motorola features added in.

If you check USA play store, it's showing for T mobile! That's why I am asking?

From the US Google Play site tech specs for GPE:

Unlocked GSM/UMTS/HSPA+
GSM/EDGE/GPRS (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
UMTS/HSPA+ up to 21 Mbps (850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz)


Motorola's site specs:

Global GSM Model:
GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
UMTS/HSPA+ up to 21 Mbps (850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz)

US GSM Model:
GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
UMTS/HSPA+ up to 21 Mbps (850, 1700 (AWS), 1900 MHz)

If that helps clear things up.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1
Moto G 16GB US GSM
