Salticidae family is as close as I can get.

Not sure but there is a chance it is a female in the genus Plexippus. See the links for a picture of a female P. paykulli and petersi.. There are a few species of Plexippus in India. It may be another of the genus – or of course something else entirely.

This is a female Plexippus petersi

If it is Plexippus I think it looks more like P. petersi – but not sure at all

I’ll go with female too.
Inaturalist is an excellent resource with species observation numbers in a given region.
So, P. petersi seems to be a good call.
