The answer to your question is as follows:

India, under the current circumstances, is the country of peace and harmony. It cannot be called Dar-ul-Harb and the laws of Dar-ul-Harb will not apply here. However, the issue of usurious transactions in Dar al-Harb is different. According to Imam Abu Yusuf, it is absolutely illegitimate and according to Imam Abu Hanifa and Imam Muhammad, it is permissible with a few conditions. Prohibition is prescribed in the Qur'anic verses without any condition; Therefore, here in Hanafiate, the school of Jumhoor has priority and there is a fatwa on it. Therefore interest based transactions cannot be justified in India.
