India Electric Outlets

A variety of electrical plugs can be found in India, so a good  all-around adaptor plug set is recommended. 

 Type D, shown at right, is the most common.  

As shown here, outlets are often controlled by an adjacent switch.

Some hotels in India may offer desks and workstations that accept a variety of plug types, as shown in this photo taken in Mumbai.

Remember: no matter what type of plug an outlet might accept, voltage in India is 230V 50Hz.
