I am really sorry, I did not change it because I was doubtful whether the species is right or not so I was waiting for a better suggestion. I did not mean any disrespect. As you [SatyenM] said, for the time being I think it is OK to finalise the ID given by Stian Waller.
To Stian Waller, I am really sorry I didn't confirm the ID, hope you understand.

Hi Stian Waaler thank you so much for the ID suggestion. So, do you think that this duck is an introduced species in Inida. They look very similar but do they belong to the same species?
