Kazakhstan and Iran took the third and fourth places respectively.
India drew Mongolia and beat the rest of the teams in a 22-team nine round Swiss on four boards with one reserve. In the final round match against Vietnam, Grandmasters S P Sethuraman and K Sasikiran won on the second and fourth boards while GMs B Adhiban and Vidit Santosh Gujrathi drew their respective matches on top and third boards.
