One of the most affordable VR headset available online in India, Irusu Mini VR 3D Glasses.

Along with this 42mm lens, it also has 5.2 fold magnification and better FOVwhich is enough to give you an excellent VR experience for the price you’re paying.
One thing you should check before buying is that does your phone have these two sensors: 1. Gyroscope and 2. Accelerometer. If possible also motion controllers.
Irusu claims that they’re one of the lightest headsets in this segment, that fact can be backed up by the weight of the headset which about 242 grams only. So lightweight means more comfortable to wear and can be used for long hours.

I have tried my best to write about the best VR headsets that you can buy in India. I may have excluded some brands like oculus rift because their products were not up to that standard as of the other rival brands.
So, choose which headset suits you the most but remember your smartphone must have accelerometer and gyroscope sensors to support virtual reality devices.
