    Why is that India is always listed as a Regionally Restricted Country?

    We have so many like minded and equally professional and capable folks here who would love to explore such opportunities!!!

    I’m sure there should be a strong reason for this which should be known to people, else the regional restriction tag should be removed!

    I personally feel deprived every time I see the exam I want to take is available, but India is (black)listed here!
