Google has finally launched Youtube Premium in India for INR 129(AUD ~2.60) and Family Membership for INR 189 (AUD ~3.80).
Comes with Youtube Music, No Ads in Youtube as well as Google Play Music.
This cost cheaper that was posted earlier for using Russian subscription option posted here https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/414890
I have signed up after cancelling Russian plan with my Macquarie Debit card so no conversion charges.
Everything included in post by @Dealbot applies here too.
Youtube Premium will give you access to -
• Ad-free videos: Watch videos without interruptions
• Save offline: Save videos and songs on your mobile device to watch offline
• Background play: Keep videos or music playing when using other apps or when your screen’s off
• Audio mode: Listen to audio only on the YouTube Music app
• Google Play Music Subscription (when available in your country) is included at no additional cost
Current pricing is $14.99 per month in Australia. This workaround should work for new and existing customers.
Again, the trick to making this work is having access to a VPN service. If you're signed up to one then the rest of the process should be fairly simple.
1. Connect a VPN to the server India (I connected to Bangalore)
2. Click on Paid Memberships(youtube.com), then click on Learn more.
- Enter Indian address and pay by credit card.
Termination takes place under this link(music.youtube.com)
Example of a India Address :
Address line : My Place

Postcode : 400070
State : Maharashtra
