I think you can unless specifically noted that you cannot.

Yes you can; building physics works the same anywhere in the galaxy! If you need weather files for locations in India, you can download them here:

Yes I agree to that ..Basically I got stuck where you set template and assign climatic zones . As openstudio includes only climatic zones according to the different states of America .

You can map the ASHRAE climate zones to any site using the International Climate Zone Definitions table here: Most sites in India are climate zone 1.
