I think it's very much possible. Most banks charge 3.5% extra as a markup for transactions in foreign currency. (and by the way it doesn't even have to be international credit card)

As @kookaburra said, you can use your card for doing any international transactions, and you will be charged in INR based on that day's conversion rates + a 3.5% markup (currency conversion) fee
