The government prepares a master-list of banned websites. And, then ISPs scan addresses accessed by users against this master-list, and if a banned website is being accessed, it blocks the same.

Indian users are easily accessing blocked websites in India by using many back-door tricks like using HTTPS address format, using Dark-web browsers, using Google/Cloudflare DNS servers, or accessing via mirror sites.

First of all, the government would have to make legal amendments to make porn-watching illegal in India, and then resort to strong technical methods like blocking a full range of IP-addresses/domains/sub-domains.
