In the women's section also, India pulled off a creditable draw with China by denying their higher rated opponents any victory in the four games.
International Master Harika Dronavalli began the good show for the Indian women by denying Grandmaster Hou Yifan a victory.
Tania Sachdev then drew with higher-rated Ju Wenjun in the second game before Esha Karavade, an International Master, splitting points with Grandmaster Zhao Xue.
Nisha Mohota then completed the fine show by the Indians by drawing with higher-rated Huang Qian in the last game.
Indian women are on third spot with eight points after the third round.
