Important Licensing Changes to Microsoft India Commercial Business

Due to currency fluctuations, Microsoft India is announcing Indian rupee pricelist changes to harmonize its prices for commercial on-premises software and online services between India and the Asian region, effective February 1, 2023. Microsoft periodically assesses the impact of its local pricing for software products and online services to ensure there is reasonable alignment across regions and this change is an outcome of this assessment.

Starting February 1, 2023, Indian rupee prices for commercial on-premises software will increase by 4.5%, online services will increase by 9%, and Windows GGWA will increase by 11% to realign close to prevailing USD pricing levels in the Asian region. On, revised Indian rupee prices for direct sales to India based customers for a select set of online services such as Microsoft 365 and Dynamics 365 will be reflected as of February 1, 2023. For business customers, these changes will not affect existing orders under licensing agreements for products that are subject to price protection. However, prices for new product additions under such licensing agreements and purchases under new contracts will be as defined by the pricelist at the time of order. Customers across India buying online services in Indian rupee will continue to find Microsoft cloud offerings highly competitive.

This announcement does not cover hardware (e.g., Surface) or Office and Windows consumer products. For indirect sales where Microsoft products are sold through resellers, final prices and currency of sale will continue to be determined by resellers.
