Yes.  Note that it is not too easy to qualify for an IETF venue; e.g., people from Madrid have tried to get an IETF there but (at least last time I looked) Madrid just didn’t have the right places to meet at.

So you really have to look at specific venues and their suitability; we can’t really meet “in India” but we need to meet at a specific hotel/conference center.  (And, of course, the city that one is in needs to be reachable without a three-day horseback ride, and needs to have enough hotels to house all the IETFers, but I think that’s rather easy to meet in India.)
