Someone must appear at the bank to open an account, normally an officer or Manager (similar to a corporate director) of the LLC. Delaware is normally used for companies on the Stock Exchanges (for various complex reasons.) If the LLC earns income it will be taxed, so choosing any state without a state income tax is probably what you are seeking if you will have no physical presence in the US.
The above is general legal and business analysis. It is not "legal advice" but analysis, and different lawyers may analyse this matter differently, especially if there are additional facts not reflected in the question. I am not your attorney until retained by a written retainer agreement signed by both of us. I am only licensed in California. See also avvo.com terms and conditions item 9, incorporated as if it was reprinted here.
I concur with Mr. Doland. You can form a company in the US. Selecting the most proper jurisdiction for incorporation is a delicate balance. However, in addition to that, once you start doing business in the US, you are subject to US taxation (state and Federal). In addition, because you are an alien foreign resident there are tax implications in your country of residence. The best solution for you is to work with an international firm. Please note that we have an Indian attorney among our staff. Best
