I spend some time lurking on the Indian chapter's section of the IGDA forum. I think the industry as a whole is focusing on India less than it should, so I'm keeping an eye on things, and this is one place to do it.

Anyhow. I spotted this post there today (emphasis mine):

We are looking at development houses making online casual games for our upcoming portal. We are open to buying our existing games or getting customized development done.
High Level Specs:Flash/SHockwave basedCategories: Action, Arcade and Sports; Benchmark: Redline Rumble, Soccer on Pogo etc; Timeframe: 4 weeks;
Budget: below US$ 4000

Wow. Guess we'll have to check back in a month or two to see if you get what you pay for, or if the commoditization of development is something to be feared.
