We were immediately struck by the resemblance your Caterpillar has to the North American Pipevine Swallowtail Caterpillar, so we decided to research that lead and found images of the Common Rose Caterpillar, Pachliopta aristolochiae, on Wikimedia Commons that look exactly like your individual. Images of the adult Common Rose are pictured on Butterflies of India. The entire life cycle of the Common Rose is also pictured on Butterflies of India.
