Localizing the job board

The job board, jobs.joelonsoftware.com, has been rather successful. For the next upgrade, I was thinking about setting up a separate job board specifically focused on jobs in India, since there are so many Joel on Software readers there and I’ve only seen three jobs (in Bangalore) posted.

What should I do to localize the job board for India? Should I use jobs.joelonsoftware.in or .co.in? Or neither? How much should I charge? Right now the site only accepts credit cards… is there another payment method that would work better for India? Should I allow US employers willing to sponsor H1B visas? Or just jobs actually in India? What other changes should I consider to make a more suitable product for the Indian market?

Post your suggestions here.
