The wiring looks correct though the device is not one I'm familiar with. I'm assuming the two terminals lower left are connected to each other.

Ray, it looks like the back side of a switch/receptacle with pilot light and fuse/breaker. If on 220 50 hz system, you are only breaking one leg through the fuse.

Interesting... they use black as neutral in India. Their power is 230vac to neutral so he is correct in only needing to break the hot leg.
