This is a general survey on the historical and modern presence of Freemasonry in India and Indian Freemasonry.
Freemasonry was introduced to India in the 1730s by the English. The fraternity remained under the jurisdiction of the United Grand Lodge of England through the colonial era. An independent Grand Lodge of India was founded in 1961. As of February 2011, it has 370 lodges spread across India with more than 14,900 members and is recognised by UGLE.
The Confederation of United Grand Lodges of India was founded in 2001 and is recognised by the Grand Lodge of Belgium.
