    Welcome to the forum.

    It means "It is possible that you are in the process of buying a house in India". Which part of the sentence confused you?

    Note my amendments to your post, marked in red above. Remember:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single punctuation mark (full stop, question mark, exclamation mark).
    - Always capitalise the word "I" (first person singular)
    - Always capitalise proper nouns (ie India, England, London, Delhi)
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Welcome to the forums, Rakesh. Please note the corrections I have made to your post.
    Your sentence means that the person "You" might buy a house in India.
