Google Slashes Prices to Attract Indian Businesses

Google  (NASDAQ: GOOGL  ) is making its services -- Gmail, Calendar, cloud storage, and more -- cheaper for Indian businesses.
 
While India is home to 47 million small businesses, only 1% of those -- or about 500,000 -- are online. As Indian businesses come online over the next few years, Google is aiming to get them "hooked" onto their cloud services as soon as possible.
 
According to ZDNet, Google's cloud services are 45% cheaper than they were previously. New and current Indian customers will now pay about $2.70 (INR 150) per user per month on the "Flexible Plan" and $27 (INR 1500) per user per year on the "Annual Plan."
 
In addition to Gmail, calendar, and cloud storage, Google Apps also allow businesses to conduct video meetings and keep records on Google Docs.
