My Camera package and me are up for a feature in August. The film will be shot in the US, but the process and transfer will probably be done in India. This has lead the production to be concerned about using 3 perf.
What are problems they may encounter in post, if they shot 3 Perf?
What type of telecines support 3 Perf?
Any known labs in that area that could do this for sure?

I'd be highly concerned about shipping unprocessed rawstock across the ocean, then having it transferred to a telecine house and shipped back across the ocean again.

At the very least, someone ought get a vacation to India so your film doesn't end up like a certain "Lost" episode, pun intended.

As the old saying goes, you get what you pay for. . .

Post Script: Aren't Mexican film labs cheap? At least you can keep your film from having to travel across an ocean twice to save money.
