I am a first time android dev from India. My app is complete, however I do not own a credit card to pay for the Google Developer's licence. I am currently in college and thus its very unlikely that any bank will issue me a credit card. I do own a Maestro debit card, but it is not accepted by Google Wallet. I want to know if there is any other Indian developer here who went through my situation, and how you finally managed to pay for the developer's licence. Facts only please, no guesses.

You don't need a credit card. A debet card is sufficient. All it must have is a CVV2 number which allows to pay in the internet (for example visa electron).

Also you should look at other options which may be or may not be available in India. In my country for example there a banks that issue "Internet cards". Such a card doesn't exists in reality (no plastic) but you have the card numbers and an account where you can manage it. Then you transfer some funds to this card via a normal wire transfer from you bank acccount. Then you register it to Google Wallet and you can pay for you Google Play account.

You can also try prepaid cards with CVV2 numbers.

Google accepts all creditcards in india but not debit cards excludes icici debit card
apply for icici basic savings account and you're done.

i prefer use a credit card instead of debit cards , coz most of the debit cards when used say "refused by the bank , use another card" but credit cards are most preferred to work just fine according to my experience .

Use VISA Electron, you will get it when you open an account in a bank anywhere in the world.
