Thank you for bringing this to our attention. This does not sound correct, and our current offer for merchants in India is the one you've cited—₹20/month for first 3 months and then ₹1994/month thereafter when on the Basic plan. You should not be prompted for such a large upfront payment unless you are deciding to pay on an annual basis, but even then the total cost would be ₹17988.
Before paying, please contact our support team directly and ask that they check this for you. They can authenticate you on your account and make sure you are making the correct payment.
