Star Alliance carriers have had this route priced about $50 lower at times during the past couple months for November 2015 travel. This is near the low fare.

Even lower are $799 flights for SFO-BOM departing January to March 2016, but all the itineraries I checked required a change of airport between JFK and EWR and that is a routing to avoid by all costs considering there is only a $20 savings compared to other Star Alliance flight options with Lufthansa and Swiss.

Delta/Air France low fares in 2016

For 2016 departures there is the option of flying Air France SFO-CDG and Jet Airways to to Mumbai.
