If I host government forms or any other free forms on my website just for consolidation or ease-of-access, could I face any legal issues?
I live in India.

Unless the creator of the forms disclaims copyright then you legally need permission to post/host copies.
Some governments (e.g., the U.S. government) disclaim copyright protection for their documents.
Hosting forms that are posted for free with no access restrictions (e.g., clickwrap) might be covered under "fair use," but I do not know the Indian law on that.
