Connection in MAA

Quick question regarding connecting in MAA.

I'm arriving from BRU on Jet Airways and will be connecting to SpiceJet (SG) an Indian LCC for an onward trip to CMB. I have a valid visa for India however I don't want to enter the country during this transit and would rather prefer to just connect and remain in the international holding area. Is this possible?

Thanks!

i'm not quite sure if its possible since spicejet may not have a counter in the transit area so you won't be able to get your boarding pass....

Should be no problem just politely ask Jet agents to help you. 9W may not interline luggage with SG, so this may be a real problem.

In which case, going through customs twice becomes unavoidable?
