I can ping dns.tech-solindia.com from here in France.

But I see no connection with the DNS. Why would a failure to ping
(quite common, with the firewalls) prevent to use the machine as a
nameserver? Your registrar really requires the ability to ping the
nameserver? This is very strange.

dns.tech-solindia.com seems OK:

% dig @dns.tech-solindia.com SOA tech-solindia.com
