Ms Chhillar tweeted her thanks, writing, "Thank you, everyone, for your constant love, support... This one's for #India."
Ms Chhillar also thanked President Kovind and Prime Minister Modi for their wishes.
Ms Chhillar impressed many with her answer during the Question and Answer round. She was asked which profession she thought deserved the highest salary and why.
Replying to the question, Ms Chhillar said it was not a question about a person's salary and that a mother was worthy of the highest respect.
"I think a mother is of highest respect. I don't think its just about cash but love and respect she gives to someone. She is the biggest inspiration in my life. Mother should get highest respect," she said to applause.
According to Ms Chhillar's profile on the Miss World website, Ms Chhillar aims to be a cardiac surgeon and has plans of opening non-profit hospitals in rural areas.
Ms Chhillar is the sixth Indian woman to win the coveted title of Miss World. Reita Faria was the first Indian woman to claim the title back in 1966, followed by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in 1994, Diana Hayden in 1997, Yukta Mookhey in 1999 and Priyanka Chopra in 2000.
