England, who put on 120 runs at a quick pace before lunch, added 115 off 27 overs after the break.
The Indian second innings started badly. Unable to negotiate the ball that was made to spin viciously by the two England spinners, India lost the wickets of Sehwag, Pujara and Tendulkar to be reeling at 52 for three.
Sehwag and Tendulkar, who failed for the third time in the series in as many attempts, were consumed by the crafty Panesar in his fourth and eighth overs while Graeme Swann sent back first-innings centurion Pujara, who failed for the first time in the series.
All three were dismissed while trying to defend – Sehwag and Pujara were caught in the close-in cordon around the bat and Tendulkar was trapped in front while playing across to Panesar.
The veteran batsman has a sequence of 15, 8 (Perth), 25, 13 (Adelaide) against Australia; 19 (Hyderabad), 17, 27 (Bangalore) against New Zealand; 13 (Ahmedabad), 8 and 8 (in this game) to show for in his last 10 innings.
England packed off Kohli when he hit a dipping full toss from Swann to cover fielder, substitute Joe Root.
Yuvraj was caught bat-pad off Panesar who then got rid off Dhoni whose edge off a turning ball was taken at slip.
In the morning, Cook notched up his second century on the trot in his calm and collected fashion while Pietersen hammered his way to 186 to put England ahead.
Starting the day at 87, Cook reached his second hundred of the rubber following his marathon effort of 176 in the second innings of the opening game at Ahmedabad, while Pietersen notched his first of the series as England batted their way to within 29 runs of the home side's first innings total of 327 when India broke the stand.
