Welcome to BE.

It usually is more expensive to buy a ine way ticket than a return. Why don't you try to get a quote from an online website?

Some airlines/countries will not allow non citizens to enter the country if they don't have a return ticket.

And check out the visa situation. If you're not up to date with the visa rules, I would try asking on this thread here:

As above it depends which visa and which airline.
Theoretically you do not need a return ticket to enter India.
If on a long term visa or have an OCI card --no problem.
The new 'visa on arrival' may require you to show a return ticket or sufficient money.
Usually nobody looks at your return ticket, but occasionally an airline check-in person may not be aware of the rules and queries a single ticket.
A return ticket bought in India can be cheaper.
Jet Airways will cancel and rebook a return ticket, for a fee. I don't know about other airlines you can check their web sites.
