I bought bitcoins with INR (Indian national rupee) the rate at tradehill and bitcoin-central is around 480 INR/BTC. (about two weeks ago now 250 INR/BTC)

The current market rates :

 1 USD =49 INR

 1 BTC =3 USD

Accordingly BTC should be priced as
 
  1 BTC = 3 X 49 = 147 INR (around 150 INR).

There is huge gap .

My 985 INR at tradehill were exchanged for just got me just 9.32 LR USD.After cutting all charges it should have been around 16 LR USD.

So what you are describing is an arbitrage opportunity that nobody is taking advantage of?

More of a liquidity problem.  The highest bid is right at $3 worth the rupees.  You might be able to make a little money if you had access to an indian bank account and a reasonably inexpensive way to get the funds back to USD, but at 45 BTC/day volume you'll need a whole lot more buying pressure to make it worth your time.

This is what I need,unfortunately there is no such service currently available. May be when bitcoins becomes popular in India then it may happen.
