My relatives are coming from the states to India. I will get the gear from them. Will buying grey market have any effect on that?
Since i am living in India, The type of warranty wont make a difference, right? So it doesnt matter if i buy a Grey Market or USA product.If you buy a body with a USA warranty then you will have to send it to Nikon USA for service during the warranty period. If you buy a "Grey Market" body from B&H you will have to send it to B&H for service during the warranty period. You decide.
. . . if i do buy 'Grey market' is it possible that the Nikon service center wont fix my camera even if warranty period is still active?

No! All Nikon products come with a warranty by the manufacturer. The designated Nikon service center will always repair "in warranty" Nikon products and perform "out of warranty" repairs.
