The India Fund, Inc. Distribution Announcement

The India Fund, Inc. (NYSE: IFN; the “Fund”) announced today a distribution of $0.32 per share payable in cash on January 13, 2012 to shareholders of record on December 30, 2011, which distribution represents long-term capital gains. The distribution will be paid pursuant to the Fund’s dividend reinvestment and cash purchase plan. The ex date of the distribution is December 28, 2011. The distribution represents the undistributed amount of the Fund’s net investment income and net capital gains for the 2011 fiscal year. Although this distribution is payable in 2012, it will be treated as having been paid by the Fund and received by stockholders as of December 31, 2011.

The Fund is a closed-end management investment company that seeks long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in Indian equity securities. The Fund conducts semi-annual repurchase offers and is traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the trading symbol “IFN.”

At a special meeting of stockholders held on December 12, 2011, stockholders of the Fund voted to approve a new investment management agreement between the Fund and Aberdeen Asset Management Asia Limited (“Aberdeen Asia”). The new investment management agreement will become effective on December 19, 2011 following the transition of investment management services from Blackstone Asia Advisors L.L.C., the Fund’s former investment manager, to Aberdeen Asia, an affiliate of Aberdeen Asset Management PLC (together with its subsidiaries, “Aberdeen”).

Aberdeen is an independent asset manager founded in 1983, with $265 billion in assets under management (“AUM”) as of September 30, 2011. Singapore is the regional head office of Aberdeen’s Asian operations, which were established in 1992. Asian equity securities in both regional and single country mandates are core investment competencies of Aberdeen. Aberdeen manages over $70 billion in Asia Pacific (excluding Japan) equity securities. Closed-end management investment companies have formed part of Aberdeen’s business since its inception and remain an important element of its client base in the United States and globally. Aberdeen currently manages 30 closed-end management investment companies with approximately $13 billion in AUM as of September 30, 2011.
