It happens when the company or division does not directly want to come into the Indian market. They license it to a third party for distribution. It has happened many times now:
Samurai - NES Shaw Wallace - SEGA GENESIS Sujata Electronics (I think) - SEGA DREAMCAST Samurai (again) - DS LITE Milestone Interactive - Playstation, Playstation 2 and Playstation 3, though SONY is present in India.

It was because it was the first time that Nintendo was officially allowing one of its systems to be launched in India and they were sceptical on the level of awareness of the Nintendo brand name in India. So they resorted to applying a Japanese name like "Samurai" which most poeple in urban India (and I'm sure many in rural India too) would be familiar with. It was more of a recall thing.
