Amandeep opened the day with a bogey and then ran a string of pars all the way till seventh, which she birdied. She dropped another shot on the par-four ninth and then parred the next seven holes till she again birdied the par-four 17th. The effort helped Amandeep gain a handy three-shot lead over Tvesa Malilk and Sonam Chugh, both of whom shot 74.

Millie Saroha and Suchitra Ramesh both shot 76.

Amateur Sneha Singh was tied-sixth with Siddhi Kapoor and Khushi Khanijau, who had a good outing last week in the 11th leg of the Tour. They shot 77 each.
