West Indies would be disappointed to lose Kirk Edwards in the last session of the day but Darren Bravo fought it out to remain unbeaten on 38 off 84 balls.
Adrian Barath (62) put on 93 runs for the 2nd wicket with Kirk Edwards (60), before both batsmen were sent back by Ishant Sharma, to ensure there was no collapse in the second innings.
Pacer Umesh Yadav, who picked up 3 wickets in the first innings, also gave India its first breakthrough in the second when Kraigg Brathwaite edged a delivery to wicketkeeper MS Dhoni.
In the first innings, Pragyan Ojha carried on his good form from the first Test to pick up four wickets.
He ensured the West Indian tail did not wag for too long as he scalped captain Darren Sammy, Carlton Baugh and Fidel Edwards within the space of 24 runs.
Newly married R Ashwin got the crucial wickets of Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Kraigg Brathwaite, who had both starred with the bat for the West Indies in the first Test.
Umesh Yadav also got rid of Marlon Samuels and opener Adrian Barath, who edged the ball to Virender Sehwag at second slip.
