    Hi,

    Yes you can use it as far as it is part of the free tier service under $200 credit limit create-free-services for product availability I will suggest you to filter this page and select the region. I have checked and SQL DB is available across India.

    products-by-region

    Hope this helps.

    About Azure SQL Database, it allows you to create one free Azure SQL Server database per region, it reverts to Standard after 365 days. That is what I know ever since you use PowerShell to create it.

    New-AzureRmSqlDatabase -DatabaseName $DatabaseName  -ServerName $sqlServer.ServerName   
    -ResourceGroupName $resourceGroup.ResourceGroupName -Edition 'Free'   
    -RequestedServiceObjectiveName 'Free'  
    

    Not all regions support it also. This works only for the following regions, for now:

     Location           DisplayName  
     --------           -------------------  
     australiaeast      Australia East  
     australiasoutheast Australia Southeast  
     centralindia       Central India  
     eastasia           East Asia  
     francecentral      France Central  
     japaneast          Japan East  
     japanwest          Japan West  
     koreacentral       Korea Central  
     koreasouth         Korea South  
     northcentralus     North Central US  
     northeurope        North Europe  
     southeastasia      Southeast Asia  
     southindia         South India  
     uksouth            UK South  
     ukwest             UK West  
     westcentralus      West Central US

     westindia          West India  
     westus2            West US 2  
    

    South India and West India regions allow to create free databases.
