It appears there are GIA labratories in India. It seems new labs are opening, too. Probably you can "google" to find locations.

Also, many of the natural pearls offered by KariPearls.com have certificates from the following lab:

Hi Pattye, Thanks for all the information that you have shared. GIA laboratories in India don't do Pearl testing.I am searching for some authentic company who can do it in India.
Will appreciate if anybody on this forum can help me out in finding it.
