The tentative date for the Indian grand prix is 4th December (will most probably be first week of Dec 2011). FIA, the controlling authority for F1 in an official statement quoted:

The Bahrain Grand Prix will take place on 30 October, replacing the Indian Grand Prix, which will now become the final round of the 2011 Championship, combined with the FIA Annual General Assembly and Prize-Giving Gala
