Wikipedia (points 10 and 11) states that money bills in India are presented to the Lok Sabha (lower house of the Indian Parliament) with the permission of the President and therefore there is no need for someone to send a bill back to Parliament after they have already agreed to it (because the President would not allow the bill to be presented if they disagreed with it).
