The Indian team still has a chance to finish at the top of their group and also qualify for the upcoming AFC U-23 Asian Cup 2022 by winning against Kyrgyzstan on October 30. Another criterion for India to finish at the top is a draw result of Uman and UAE.

And if any team in UAE vs Oman match wins then India will have to win the next match with a greater goal difference than UAE vs Oman. Somehow if India manages to secure the second position in Group E then their qualification will be dependent on the results of the other groups.
