Palm squirrel

It's certainly a palm squirrel, probably an Indian or three-striped palm squirrel Funambulus palmarum. There is also a northern or five-striped which has an extra pair of pale stripes - I can't discern these here but they can be difficult to see. See for some photos of the northern species.
