We understand that you are looking to understand the services of WhatsApp Business API as it works for Businesses in India. Here are some Frequently Asked question of our clients.
Is WhatsApp Business API free?

Other than the setup, there are charges from WhatsApp on every new conversation that a business initiates or receives during the 24 hours window. Also, the Meta Business Service Providers have their own plan that are add-ons or incorporate the fees from WhatsApp.
