The hosts finished on 323-4 after the opening day's play and they continued to score runs freely with a further 87 runs without reply.
Cheteshwar Pujara had to wait over 20 minutes to score the two runs that he required for his century but he did so with a fine flick.
At the other end of the crease, Yuvraj Singh was scoring at will against England's attack and he soon brought up his half century with a boundary.
Soon after, Yuvraj hit his second six as India coasted to lunch with Pujara unbeaten on 133 and Yuvraj on 78.
