Dear Rama:
I am quite familiar with the situation regarding data sharing in India.
India is one of the worst offenders when it comes to data sharing—yet they are apparently eager to run a conference on this topic!
I have mentioned this issue to some of the key folks back there—when I was there for workshops funded by the Indo-US  Science and Technology Forum and for an NSF workshop on an Indoflux network.  For things like carbon flux measurements and gravity data—just as examples—India is literally a “black hole”.
Several of the science results that Indian scientists will claim in India were made possible because they had access to international data (a lot of it is US)—because there is no Indian data!
I don’t have much hope of any of this changing any time soon. But it might be a good idea to keep pushing on this issue.
