The village in West Bengal has become overrun with thousands of worshippers flocking to see the child, who has four arms and four legs, at the hospital.
His condition is believed to be caused by the baby’s twin being joined to him in the womb.
Many were crying and praying – suggested he was the Hindu God Brahma – while some believed it was a sign of the end of the world.
A relative of the ‘God Baby’ told a television station in Baruipur, east India: ‘When he first came out we couldn’t believe it. The nurses said he was badly deformed but I could see that this was a sign from God.
‘In fact, this is a miracle, its God’s baby. Indian God’s have extra limbs just like this.’
A police spokesman said they were having difficulty controlling the crowds in the village.
The spokesman said: ‘This is a freak baby and it is tragic, there is nothing Godly about him at all. But the crowds are going berserk and clamouring to see the child.
‘Hundreds are crying in the streets, hundreds of others are praying and setting up camp here. Some are even panicking and believe this is a sign of the end of the world.
‘I have never seen anything like this in my whole career.’
