    Yes since Switzerland is part of the Schengen treaty. And on the assumption that you have a multiple entry Schengen.To be safe check the Swiss embassy website in your home country.

    Switzerland belongs to the Schengen treaty countries since 2008 and the use of the visa issued by the Dutch embassy in India is possible. There are however some small administrative issues (formalities) to overcome. Turn to any Schengen embassy for details.
