The model item passed into the dictionary is of type 'System.Collections.Generic.List`1', but this dictionary requires a model item of type 'System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable`

I am trying to run this code in MVC


public ActionResult TeleList()
List<TeleInfo> lstTeleInfo = new List<TeleInfo>();
oyetriviadbEntities db = new oyetriviadbEntities();
lstTeleInfo = db.TeleInfoes.ToList();
return View(lstTeleInfo);


.csthml(Razor View Code)

@model IEnumerable<MvcApplication3.Models.MTeleInfo>

ViewBag.Title = "TeleList";


@Html.ActionLink("Create New", "Create")
@Html.DisplayNameFor(model => model.TeleName)
@Html.DisplayNameFor(model => model.TeleMob)

@foreach (var item in Model) {
@Html.DisplayFor(modelItem => item.TeleName)
@Html.DisplayFor(modelItem => item.TeleMob)
@Html.ActionLink("Edit", "Edit", new { id=item.TeleGUID }) |
@Html.ActionLink("Details", "Details", new { id=item.TeleGUID }) |
@Html.ActionLink("Delete", "Delete", new { id=item.TeleGUID })


Running above code in MVC I am getting the error as below

The model item passed into the dictionary is of type 'System.Collections.Generic.List`1[MvcApplication3.TeleInfo]', but this dictionary requires a model item of type 'System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable`1[MvcApplication3.Models.MTeleInfo]

 Let me know what is the issue and how to resolve it?

 You are passing the wrong Model if you check the line in controller it is

List<TeleInfo> lstTeleInfo = new List<TeleInfo>();

here in the above code, your model is TeleInfo, while in the View if you will check

@model IEnumerable<MvcApplication3.Models.MTeleInfo>

Your's razor is expecting List of type MTeleInfo, so you need to refer the correct Model name.

In the view, it should be

@model IEnumerable<MvcApplication3.TeleInfo>

Change the namespace/model-name according to what it is in your Project.

Your issue is in view, not in C# controller, you need to change the first line of your view, it should be something like 

@model IEnumerable<NameSpace.Modelname>

Your model name is not matching with the C# list you are passing to View

read @neena's answer, carefully, you need to replace model, and pass the same model to view, as you are using in C# controller 0
