Update:

After receiving details from haasman, I proceeded to adjust the bowden cable.

Upon inspection, there was considerable cable slack (approx, 1/4 inch), so I backed-out the adjuster by 2 turns (anti-clockwise) and went for a drive.

Big difference!
With gentle accelaration, 3rd gear held till 2100 rpm (instead of 1600 rpm) . The car did not bog-down and felt more lively to drive.

With brisk accelaration, 3rd gear held till 3100 rpm.

After some additional minor adjustments, I have finally settled on the adjuster backed out 2 and 1/2 turns (anti clockwise) from the initial position.

The car is transormed!

Thank you Haasman
