Thanks.

Is it possible to design a Smartphone app which will have encrypt and decrypt functions for the SMS?.

Answer
Yes, several smartphone producers have encryption systems available for their phone service.  ATT does and Apple does.  There are independent apps also available for Android and iphones.

You can learn about the many types and kinds by googling for them and make your own summary of the available solutions.

The encryption process is independent of the language content and does not discriminate among language or data so you will find them work for India as well as any other country of the world.
