@Realme Probably not, even if its available locally, the price would be much higher. My costs are below.

Mini PCRs 10000
CustomsRs 1900 (Rs 650 is Fedex's handling charge 😡)
64 GB mSataRs 1000
4 GB RAMRs 1000? (I repurposed an existing module)
Total~ Rs 14000

Until FreeBSD includes WG in the kernel we won't see WG in pfSense. Anybody wanting to use WG should use a VPN provider for eg. Mullvad, PIA, NordVPN among several others that have implemented it via their apps and in the servers. But a large number are in the beta testing phase. So expect a roll out only a 1-4 months from now. I am not too enthusiastic about beta software, and remember WG is still in testing phase, when used on a router, I don't mind a desktop application through. For a router I prefer the more mature albeit slower OpenVPN. That said I removed the OVPN configuration (I had a ExpressVPN subs, but now have others) from my pfSense box and only run VPN through a W10 app and when required for e.g. whilst torrenting. Gives me better control over what goes through a VPN and what does not. Also, if privacy is paramount then avoid WG because from what I read it doesn't work without logs making it unsuitable for VPN services that tout privacy as one of their USPs.
