The new FamilySearchWiki site has some links (most of the links above), and also some addresses for archives in India.

https://wiki.familysearch.org/en/India

This site is on-going, so it's worth checking it regularly to see what's been added.

Can I add this source as well:

Allen's Indian Mail, and Register of Intelligence for British and Foreign India, China and all parts of the East.

http://books.google.co.nz/books?q=editions:OCLC12933469&id=wbUOAAAAQAAJ&sou

There are volumes for   1845, 1846, 1847, 1848, 1849, 1850, 1851, 1852, 1856, all searchable, very addictive.
