With Koushal besting competitors from 63 countries, this feat helped the title go back to India after 21 years.
Earlier, India won the title back in 2001 with Dr. Aditi Govitrikar who also served as a judge for Miss India Inc 2022-23.
Koushal received the crown from the United States' Shaylyn Ford who won the title last year. Koushal beat Mrs Polynesia for the title, who stood as the first runner-up while Mrs Canada was named the second.
Donning a gorgeous pink slit gown with intricate embroidery work and sequins for the final round, the 32-year-old contestant stood in disbelief after her name was announced as the winner of the supreme beauty pageant.
