Co-opener Mayank Agarwal has taken his place.
Gill scored a duck in the first innings and made 14 in the second innings in the second Test.
India closed Day 3 firmly, with England needing a miracle to win or even save the match.
After Rohit Sharma scored 161 in the first innings to help India score 329, Ravichandran Ashwin took five wickets when England was eliminated for 134.
Ashwin then played with the bat, bringing his fifth Test century forward, giving England 482.
India wants to level the series of four games, after losing the opening game with 227 points.
