The clearest one paragraph summary (with references) about this matter is Kivisild et al., "The Genetic Heritage of the Earliest Settlers Persists Both in Indian Tribal and Caste Poulations", AJHG, 72:313-332 (2003). See page 328. This journal is online and available for free by doing a google search under AJHG.
