I have been suggested this app - https://apps.shopify.com/shiprocket for shipping in India because of the number of pin codes they cover.
What do you suggest?
Thanks in advance.
How are you? Thanks for chiming in here. ?
This app does seem like a good free option to go with. Though it totally depends on the amount of shipping codes that you may need.
Perhaps you can give it a try to see what you think? You can always remove it at any stage too.
Some other paid options include:

Thought I'd give my take on this, as it is India-specific.
I have been running a store for a while and taxes and GST can always be a pain - as you know, the taxation system and legislation in India has changed as of July 1st 2017.
Here is the article that helped me setup GST for Indian stores on Shopify in case anyone else is having issues with this.
Can anyone check on this to see if it is compliant? :)
My site www.edgability.com is currently open to only India, had to disable the rest-of-the-world option.
What if there are international orders, will they have to insert international pin codes as well?
And what about invoices for those who ordering internationally, would GST be calculate on those as well?
Would a currency switcher calculate shipping and taxes automatically for international orders?
Any recommendation is welcome. Thanks.
Another app that we have found for India stores is Order Invoice GST for India
The app offers fully GST compliant invoices.
It has some highly useful features such as :-
