I am not aware of any rule that mandates the need to provide local internet access if the company policy doesn’t allow that. I have lot of customers who provide no internet access at all.
If the senior managers do need internet, they can use their laptops to browse by minimising the RDP screen. (at least that is what they do when the remote US side does not allow them to browse through the tunnel using the remote US gateways).
Also - I am not aware of any rule that mandates that Indian browsing should happen only through Indian gateways. I will find out once more since I might have missed it.

I am not sure how else to explain. I was referenced to the Indian Telegraph Act 1885, and amendments to such brought forth by the India Department of Telecommunications, in time, which, in what I am interested in, allegedly require local Internet access for all employees in India. This is not possible if using thin clients hosted in US-based DCs, designed to access the Internet in the US, unless those specific to India hosted virtual desktops being configured to "go back" to India (via some creative routing and/or proxy pacs, with proxy servers hosted in India) to comply with the alleged requirement. If the latter is true, then the bad performance I was alluding to: India employee accessing virtual desktop in the US DC, which then sends them back to India for Internet access.

I can help you on the technical advice.
Many of our clients access servers in the US on a continuous basis. You get excellent bandwidth and uptime in India, particularly in the cities.
However I did not understand the India-US-india round trip part.

I was wondering if someone could point me (or share direct, personal experience) to some information referencing local Internet access (per legal requirements for doing business) in India, if in need to utilize Citrix or VMWare solutions (virtual desktop) hosted in US-based Data Centers, at present with corresponding US Internet access. A redirection of such traffic from India -to-> US virtual desktop -to-> India local Internet access is definitely a technical possibility, but I assume that due to the latency would be practically useless.
NOTE: due to internal security requirements, the "embedded" browser from some versions of thin client is not an option.
