A Schengen Visa is the document issued by the appropriate authorities to the interested party for visiting/travelling to and within the Schengen Area. The Schengen Area is comprised of 26 countries that have agreed to allow free movement of their citizens within this area as a single country. Of the 26 countries bound by the Schengen agreement, 22 are part of the EU and the other 4 are part of the EFTA.
Hi Sanjay, If you are an Indian passport holder you can apply for a Schengen Visa at the Embassy of any of the 26 Member States. It is one special kind of tourist visa that enables either transit through or an intended stay within the territory of the Schengen Member States for the duration of maximum 90 days (short stay) within a 180-day period. For more info:
Schengen visa also depends on the country that you apply from. Also note that apply for multiple entry visa from whereever you apply from, and France is the fastest embassy for getting one. This is in addition to the replies that are written above.

ITs a simply online process that is moderated by VFS and is pretty easy. Check the visa from any of the embassies (France, Italy, Netherlands - Most common), or Scandinavian countries and simply check for multiple entry visit and you will get permit for all the 26 countries :)
