Sadly, Google only allows existing owners of Pixel and Nexus handsets to general the referral links

On the page, current Nexus or Pixel owners can participate in this program by entering their emails. Within the next 48 hours, Flipkart will send an email to the email ID they entered before with a link which they can use or share.
