if you want to read light, romantic comedy style books you should read books by nisha minhas these are some:
Chapatti or chips
sari and sins
passion and poppadoms
the marriage market
tall dark and handsome.
other than nishas minhas's books i would recommend a suitbale boy by vikram seth,  The Mistress of Spices: A Novel by Chitra Divakaruni

I would love to help you on your problem
but why do u want only Indian authors??
there are some amazing foreign authors like Dan Brown who have written some amazing novels like Angels and Demons and Da Vinci Code..
well i suggest that you read those novels as well
As for Indian novels there are a few good ones..
As you are young,go for novels by Chetan Bhagat
He writes books which are youth oriented
also White Tiger by Salman Rushdie is a good read
you can also try some other Indian authors like Arundhati Roy,Amitav Ghosh, Vikram Seth,Meera Syal etc and many more
I would suggest you visit this website
There you will get all the information about the novels and authors(Indian and Foreign)
you can subscribe and order the books on rent
They will deliver the books at home
 which will save you a lot of time and money
Hope this helped you
Happy Reading
