This is a male Carrhotus sannio (the females are brown/grey). The white dorsal stripe on the cephalothorax is right beneath the outside eye; the upside-down v-marks on the back of the abdomen point to two white lines (sometimes broken) which run parallel to the length.

It looks like Adanson House Spider, Hasarius adansoni. From the eyes, it's definitely a salticid, and the reported 8mm size for females is close to the 1cm you estimated for yours. Here's an image from spiderid.com with similar markings:

    $\begingroup$ Pattern of white strips and dots is different in both images. It is definitely Jumping Spider (salticid), but not Hasarius adansoni. $\endgroup$
