The 2019 Indian Open was a professional ranking snooker tournament. It was due to take place between 18 and 22 September 2018 at the Grand Hyatt Kochi Bolgatty in Kochi, India but was postponed due to the 2018 Kerala floods. The re-scheduled Indian Open was played in Kochi from 27 February to 3 March 2019.[1] It was the fifteenth ranking event of the 2018/2019 season.

Qualifying took place on 15 and 16 August 2018 in Preston, England.

John Higgins was the defending champion, having beaten Anthony McGill 5–1 in the 2017 final,[2] but he lost to Matthew Selt in the semi-finals.

Matthew Selt won his first ranking title, beating Lyu Haotian 5–3 in the final.

Zhou Yuelong made the first maximum break of his career in the fourth frame of his first round loss to Lyu Haotian. It was the 150th maximum in professional events.[3]
