  2. Super Cheap Devlopment Kit from STMicroelectronics ( < Rs 400 / 7 USD )

    Something i think which would be really suitable in the Indian environment. It has jtag , usb connectivity , 32 kb uC running at 16 Mhz with good I/O pin count among features.

    The STM8S-Discovery kit, is the cheapest and quickest way to discover the STM8S, to build and debug the application, and to program and use the device.
