    Sorry if this has been discussed before, but would like hear some opinions about the current "climate".

    Do any of you use landing pages for your .in domains that clearly state they are for sale, or is this a no-go even for the less valuable names?

    If you get hit by a INDRP on one .in name and lose the case, do you risk the registry confiscating your entire portfolio?

    Thanks.

    It has been found to be bad faith if you mention on your domain that it is for sale.

    No, definitely not.

    It depends if the name has a TM in India. Unfortunately most quality & generic words has at least one TM registered.

    Even if no Indian TM is found, it's still not 100% safe to put it for sale. As the case of nncc.in shows, a domain can be lost when the TM is registered in another country too.
