Default A Suitable Power Cord for Seasonic PSU's in India

I recently purchased a seasonic S12II 430 watt 80+ bronze psu.
The power cord they have given me doesn't has any ground pin in it(Linetek lp-33 power cord.see the image-
On searching i found out that such power cords are for europian countries were they have ground pin already present in
their sockets.I am from india and we do not have any such thing.
Can anybody suggest a 3-pin power cord to use with the above mentioned seasonic smps.Also i have a volex IA6A3 6A/250V(written on the side which goes into wall outlet probably into my
ups back side and "Volex V1625 10A 250V~ VC"is written on the other connecting point side which goes into the psu) power cord.
Can i use this volex power cord with my seasonic smps mentioned above?

The metallic ring and the stripe on the margin on the edge of the power jack are both ground.

The socket on your power supply is standardized, (IEC60320-C13) should be the same as the connector on your UPS and any other power supply.
So you can use whatever you want.

Alternatively, you can just go to your electric parts store and buy a separate plug that works in your country (I guess BS456 is the standard). Cut the European plug from the cable that came with your power supply and connect the wires in the new plug.

Just make sure your ground wire (should be green) will go to the ground wire of your plug.
