Hi Devpari -

Welcome to My Swiss Alps.

I'd check the website of your preferred rental car provider.

I use Avis, and they accept my USA driving license, also, not surprisingly, printed in English. ;-)

You should be able to rent a car with your Indian License. I have rent car from Hertz in the US with my India license so it should be good in Switzerland as well since you are a tourist for few days.

But for driving a rented car in Switzerland you require a "motorway vignette" on your windscreen. See this link and get acquainted (www.myswissalps.com/ca r/trafficregulations). Swiss rental cars have a motorway vignette. You can get a vignette online or at the border.
