It seems like all Indian Airlines has decided and taken a call on International flight operation, after Air India, GoAir and IndiGo now Vistara and SpiceJet have joined hand and stopped selling international flights till 30th April 2020.
Air India is the first airline to take the call on flight operation after the lockdown period, Air India is already stopped selling all domestic and international flight tickets till 30th April 2020.
As there is no clear instruction from DGCA till now all Indian airlines except Air India are continue taking new domestic bookings for travel after 14th April.
Hardeep Singh Puri, Minister of Civil Aviation, earlier in a tweet has said that the govt is yet to take any decision on resumption of flight services both in domestic and international sectors.
Airlines like IndiGo and GoAir have officially announced that they are not operating any international flight till 30th April but other airlines have not yet officially announced the suspension of international flights and just stopped selling.
IndiGo Airline has twitted about the suspension of international flight on Wednesday
While GoAir Spokesperson told ANI that the airline is open for bookings for international flights from 1st May 2020.

After all these announcements we checked websites of other Indian airlines like Vistara and Spicejet and found that they are also not selling any international flight tickets:
Here is the screengrab of Spicejet showing the airline has no international flights to offer till 30th April.
Vistara is in the same condition and not showing any International flights till 30th April 2020.
It is more clear now that flight operation is not going to start just after the lockdown is lifted. International flight operation may take more longer as it requires effort and subject to approval.
In our view, you should not book any Domestic/International flight until any clarification comes from DGCA.
