Check this out.
I calculated my requirements for a possible website.
I tried for 2 orders - both of the packages having the EXACT specs - the only difference is that one of them was in USD and the other in INR currencies respectively.
In USD it came to $125
In INR it came to Rs. 3131
$126 is approx Rs 5500
These are the Input Values for my Package in BOTH cases - INR and US$

When I emailed directi support I got the reply :
We have kept the pricing higher for customer who chose USD as the currency and the pricing is based on similar packages from other big hosting provider from the US.
Order the package according to your requirement and chose the currency as Indian Rupee, so you are automatically charged at the lower price.
Question is : If someone wants to hosts at directi then who the hek is going to pay in USD ?
