On March 31, 2021, the Cincinnati Reds announced India would make his major league debut on Opening Day, after being selected to make the team by way of a strong showing in spring training.

On April 1, 2021, India was selected to the 40-man roster,[25] and made his major league debut as the Opening Day starting second baseman. After striking out in his first at bat, India got his first major league hit in his second, a double down the left field line off of St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Jack Flaherty, and also collected a single off of Ryan Helsley in at bat number three.[26][27] India established a Reds rookie record by recording 7 RBI in the first five games of his career.[28]

On April 22, 2021, India hit his first career home run at home against the Arizona Diamondbacks.[29][30] On July 30, India had his first multi-home run game, hitting two homers to help beat the New York Mets, 6–2.[31] On August 4, 2021, India was awarded July NL Rookie of the Month.
