SAI Media had earlier tweeted that India ended the competition with 310 medals, but later they went on to delete their post.
India had claimed 309 medals in the 2016 edition of the South Asian Games and by winning 312 this time around, the contingent has broken its own record.
Nepal concluded the tournament at the second position in the medal tally with a total of 206 medals. Sri Lanka and Pakistan are on the third and fourth spots respectively.
The contingent had ended Monday with a total medal count of 279 medals. But the athletes have been able to add 33 more medals to take the total tally to 312.
