India uses 220 Volts, 50 Hz alternating current as the power source. Plugs and sockets have either 3 Pin connections (Type D) or 2 pin connections (Type C).
The three pin plug is rated at 250V and has three round pins in a triangular pattern.
Although a standard European electric plug (2 round pins) may fit into a power point in India, however, It’s advisable to carry a Plug Adopter to insert the 2 pin plug into a 3 Pin socket. In some cases, by pushing a pen into the terminal opens up the protected 2 Pin terminals and you can insert the 2 Pin plug.
If you wish to use any electronic devices from the United States, you’ll need a Voltage Converter And Plug Adapter. You can use ‘all-in-one’ adapters that can be plugged to your device’s power chord. Many electrical shops sell the requisite adapters.
