Is there a website similar to EPO or USPTO to see Indian Patent applications (Not filed patents)?

This site is about US patents and related law, your question may be off topic in this forum. – Ron J. Feb 26 '13 at 14:26
For purposes of locating prior art one could/should search widely. This is not a question on Indian patent law but a question about locating information. Published documents on a worldwide basis ca be used to invalidate U.S. patents. – George White Feb 26 '13 at 17:37
@RonJ. This site was launched to take advantage of recent changes to the US Patent system. Having said that, non-US questions about patents are welcome here, and our hope is that over time, the site will become the place to find prior art and get good answers to hard questions on patents everywhere. See Is this site only and specifically for the USA patent system?. – Robert Cartaino Feb 27 '13 at 16:35
