Wasp moth are tiny harmless insect https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syntomei... https://www.flickr.com/photos/itchydogim... http://www.mothsofborneo.com/part-6/synt... Here we found in North East India too.

Habitat:

Trees and around the bushes and nectar. It's easily find them resting or flying openly in the fields, road side and around the yard during warm season.

Notes:

I never seen blue wasp moth like this. I heard only black, oranges and red wasp has been identified (https://www.insectidentification.org/ins...). And this was Clear wing tiger moth (Caeneressa sp. - Syntomini, Arctiinae, Erebidae) I'm giving thanks to Mr. Mark Ridgway, bayucca and to you all for the ID

Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!

But hards to sure about it. Alice wing looks thicker in black.

Ruth_pachuau13

Yes, I think it could be Amata Alice (amata alicia)

Amata cerbers and A alicia both have nearest apical clear cell as single. Wing patterns don't match this. A passalis (in suggestion 1) doesn't resemble this in any way!
