That is an Australian shell parakeet, or budgerigar. It is a type of seed eating parrot native to Australia. They live a nomadic lifestyle, and inhabit scrublands, open woodlands, and grasslands. They are good mimics -- considered to be one of the top five talking species. Very commonly sold in pet shops. There is an entire Wikipedia page dedicated to it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Budgerigar

    $\begingroup$ The species is distributed across the world as a pet. Sometimes they escape or are purposely set free. If the local climate is suitable, they can survive and even establish local colonies. For example, books on Florida (USA) birds include the budgerigar (e.g. Florida's Birds: A Field Guide and Reference). It would not be surprising to find them in India. $\endgroup$ – user21485 Feb 18 '18 at 14:40
