On the business level it is a online served(globally), and operated on server in India. Now if I made overseas connections with companies but operated from India, then can I do that legally?

Assuming that you are not dealing with the shipping itself, and that you are careful you should be able to avoid any legal hassles. I would suggest avoiding medications, finance and armaments unless you get competent legal advice.

Important considerations:

Sanctions/Embargo's: While India has historically been quite lax on following UN sanctions India itself may have a sanctions list of countries/entities that you can't deal with without license. I couldn't find one but you might want to ask a government advisor in the state you are basing in.

Foreign Taxes: As long as you have no physical presence elsewhere than India that will generally not be a concern.

Shipping: If you don't do the shipping yourself you avoid having to deal with import/export forms and requirements. If you do the shipping yourself you will have to do different forms for every location to/from and it will get much more complicated.

The Law in India says that I can host public games if they do not involve money as prize. Otherwise, I can host it in closed group format. As in some particular set of people only and not public.

Can I host the site and start my startup in India, but serve other countries where there are no such laws?

Or do I need to host and register my company in another country?
