It has the world's third-largest case load, after the US and Brazil - the only three countries so far to record more than a million coronavirus cases.
India's active cases account for about a third of its total tally as it has been reporting a high recovery rate and a low death rate from the virus.
But deaths have been rising. At 25,602, they are eighth-highest in the world.
India's number of cases has been on the rise - with nearly record daily surges - in recent weeks. It overtook Russia earlier this month to occupy the third spot for the highest number of coronavirus cases globally.
