India bundled out England for 164 in its second innings with more than four sessions to spare in the match.
The victory was crucial for India in the context of World Test Championship as they need to win the series at least with a 2-1 margin or better to make the cut for the title clash against New Zealand.
India had lost the opening Test at the same venue by a massive 227-run margin.
The Test series will now move to Ahmedabad where the third Test, which will be a day/night affair with pink ball, begins on February 24.
In pursuit of an improbable 482-run target on a difficult pitch, England began at the overnight score of 53 for three but their batsmen struggled to counter the spin challenge posed by the home bowlers.
Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin (3/53) first sent back Dan Lawrence (26) and then removed Stokes (8) to add to the misery of the visitors.
Skipper Joe Root (33) kept one end tight in the morning session but struggled to handle ball from Patel that bounced a bit too much and was caught in the slip region.
Once Root was back in the pavilion, it was not difficult for India to wrap up the proceedings though Moeen Ali hit an attacking 43.
India moves to second spot on ICC World Test Championship points table.
