Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Dear Sir, I want to render tiles for India only. I tried India coordinates in generate_tiles.py. But it does not generate tiles. Currently, generate_tiles.py contains following lines. What should I change if I need tiles for India only.

bbox = (-180.0,-90.0, 180.0,90.0) render_tiles(bbox, mapfile, tile_dir, 0, 15, "India")

should required anything more to generate India Tiles ?

First, a correct bbox for India should be (66.4,5.2,90.5,36.2).

Then, which procedure have you followed for your attempt? Have you installed mapnik? Have you downloaded OSM data, and imported it into pgsql? If not, you must read the mapnik documentation on the wiki. If you're aware of that, do you have any message output by the python script that can give us some hint for helping you?

To add to what NicolasDumoulin said, you might find that the "serving tiles" instructions at switch2osm might be a little easier to follow than the various wiki pages (which might not have been written with each other in mind).
