It implies that any legal action can be brought only in courts at Ahmedabad city and nowhere else.

you have not used words subject to Ahmedabad jurisdiction only . in case wherein words Ahmedabad only are used then all cases have to be filed in Ahmedabad . if case is filed in another court you can raise issue as to jurisdiction

Did you draft the contract yourself, or it was drafted by your lawyer? It has been drafted in a clumsy manner. Since the word ''only' does not follow ''jurisdiction'' any purchaser of goods can file the case in accordance with law in his district court. The case(s) will not be transferred to Ahmedabad.

You should have made a contract. 

Since the expression 'only' does not follow 'jurisdiction' in invoice the purchaser can jolly well file the cases in his city. You will have to travel to his city to contest the cases filed by him.
