In India, Amazon is testing a new subscription service called Prime Lite. With an introductory price of Rs. 999 per year, the service is currently only available to select Prime members in the country as a Beta version.

Despite a few key differences, Amazon Prime Lite offers nearly identical benefits and services. Prime Lite membership does not include Amazon Prime Music, which is a significant difference. The Prime Lite service does not offer free EMI, free ebooks, or Prime Gaming.

Amazon Prime offers Same-Day and One-Day delivery, while Prime Lite offers Two-Day delivery. With Prime Lite, users can watch unlimited content on Prime Video, but it will not be in HD and will contain advertisements. Two devices can stream the content simultaneously, one of which must be a mobile phone.

As of December 2021, Amazon raised the price of Prime in India from Rs. 999 to Rs. 1,499. For users who do not require all of the benefits of Amazon Prime, Prime Lite is a more affordable option available at the previous price of Rs. 999.

A limited number of Amazon Prime Lite users in India are currently participating in an Amazon Prime Lite beta test. It is unclear when or if the service will be available to all users nationwide.
