If you're already married, you can't marry someone else in Switzerland unless you divorce first.
If you marry an Indian citizen in Switzerland, there's no difference from an immigration law point of view to a marriage in India.
If you marry a Swiss citizen, you don't get immediate citizenship, but rather get a reduced waiting time (again, it doesn't matter where you got married).

So the answers are no, no, and no.

No, marrying in Switzerland will change nothing for you, unless you marry a Swiss!

(in which case you get a B permit)

I am no expert but I am pretty sure getting married here is not going to give you citizenship! If that were the case everybody would flock to the country of their choice and get married there to become citizens.

Unless your spouse is a Swiss citizen, I see no way that your 'plan' will work.

Of course you can come here and get married.

Won't make any difference to your status though, you're just a holiday maker getting married in Switzerland.

You have to follow the usual path, get a job here, get a permit, spend 12 years here, learn the language, apply for citizenship.

Or marry a Swiss girl.

If you get a work permit you can move here and work. If you do that for 12 years, I believe you can apply for citizenship.

Just out of interest:

Having read this and your other posts; why Switzerland? Did you close your eyes and stick a pin in a map?

You were looking for a job selling diamonds, then for one in a restaurant and now want to gain citizenship via marriage.. seems strange, but then again I'm curious by nature

Well I hope for your sake your name is not Vishal Jain, cos this will probably be used against you in case you decide to take such steps as "contract marriage" AKA "Immigration Fraud"

Aha ! (slowly dawns on me )

The OP wants to do a 'UK style' arranged marriage with a Swiss Girl !

Good luck with that. From what I've seen of them, you may be better off staying put in India.
