Yes, you can deduct property tax paid on a home in India. The US tax code makes no distinction between property located in the US and property in a foreign country, when it comes to deducting mortgage interest or property taxes.  You do have to translate the amount paid into US dollars. See https://www.irs.gov/Individuals/International-Taxpayers/Yearly-Average-Currency-Exchange-Rates for help with the translation rate.
