I see this in my yard once in a while. It is appearing occasionally since many years. Am looking for its identification.

Very nice photo! While I'm not at all familiar with the wildlife in India... I did a search on iNaturalist for lady beetles in India and found this one that looks like a good match. There are some beetle experts there that could say for sure if you submit your photo to them.

It looks like the same to me. Thank you Morgan for this. Colouration differs slightly perhaps due to climate differences and other factors. The pattern on the second link is closest.
