The laws in India largely remains in grey area because per se there is no law in India preventing sale of sex toys but only obscenity laws that you can be charged with.

According to Indian laws, whoever sells, allows to hire, distributes, publicly exhibits, makes, or has in his possession any obscene book, pamphlet, paper, drawing, painting, or figure or any other obscene object whatsoever, or advertises, or makes known by any means whatsoever that any such obscene object can be procured from or through any person, is punishable with imprisonment and fine. So , in view of above everything related to sex toys is banned by our government.
