The question is not whether it's legal to ship plant material out of a  
country, but whether it's legal to ship it into the receiving country.  
Such regulations vary both from country to country and according to  
the specific plant and type of material.

It is not to the benefit of the receiving country (or specific area  
within it) if diseases, other pests, or invasive species are shipped  
into the area. Such things can in fact do a great deal of harm.

It should be possible to find out whether it's permissible to send  
seeds of the given species from your particular area of India to the  
specific area in question of the USA. It would be an extremely good  
idea to check into this before shipping: not because of the law, but  
because of the risk of doing massive amounts of damage to the plant  
and/or animal life of the area you're shipping to. Even if Autumn  
Olive is common in the area you want to send to, there may be seed  
borne diseases prevalent in your area, to which plants in your area  
are resistant, but which might be a major problem if sent elsewhere.  
Please find out whether this a concern before shipping any plant  
material significant distances.
