Hello, I answered this question for another Indian student recently. (in the future you can search on previous questions and find out many answers to your questions since there are 3000 posts). Good Luck

Try using a credit card because perhaps the Indian banking system for debt/cash payments is incompatible with Collegeboard's payment system. I think I used Paypal for or Visa/MC from my parents for this.

From collegeboard website.

You can pay registration and other fees with these methods:

Credit card: American Express, Discover, Visa, MasterCard, Diners Club, and JCB.

PayPal: New PayPal users should set up their account before starting registration. Note that payment through PayPal is not available in Ghana. Visit the PayPal website.

Check or money order: Make checks or money orders payable to "The College Board." Checks must be drawn on U.S. banks. Any checks drawn on non-U.S. banks will be returned.

Other: Bank draft.
