Unless you can find seed in India, shipping costs will be expensive. Here is one source: $3 for 3 seeds, plus $7 for international shipping (but it looks like there's a $10 minimum), so that'd be $17 total.
there may be restrictions on importing seed or plants of fruits. I didn't read the whole document, though.
SO probably your best alternative is to find a source in India. Are fruits sold in the markets? Can you find a seed seller in India?

"It seems starfruit may be better propagated by stem cuttings. There are seeds that are available but they tend to be less successful in terms of germination.

Some contacts:
- Bagalkot: Shirur village (20 kms from Bagalkot) - Contact Dr. Athani at +91-9480077891.
- Dharwad: Contact Dr. Sanjeev Kulkarni at +91-9448143100 (his farm is ~5 kms from Dharwad) or
Mr. M. V. Patil at Guddada hulikatti village (about 30 kms from Dharwad) +91-9481284612."
