The Indian team was on Saturday docked 40 percent of its match fee for slow over-rate in the fourth T20 International against New Zealand at the Westpack Stadium here.
Captain Kohli lost his wicket for mere 11 runs, but India rode on Manish Pandey's unbeaten half-century to post 165/8 after being asked to bat.
In chase, opener Colin Munro and wicketkeeper-batsman scored a half-century each as New Zealand managed to tie with India after allotted 20 overs.
The match went into Super Over, in which New Zealand scored 13 runs and India chased the target with a ball to spare.
ICC match referee Chris Broad imposed the sanctions after Virat Kohli's side was ruled to be two overs short of the target on Friday after time allowances were taken into consideration.
"In accordance with Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to minimum over-rate offenses, players are fined 20 percent of their match fees for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time," the ICC said in a statement.
On-field umpires Chris Brown and Shaun Haig, and third umpire Ashley Mehrotra had leveled the charges.
Skipper Kohli pleaded guilty to the offense and accepted the sanction, so there was no need for a formal hearing.
India beat New Zealand in the super over to stretch their lead to 4-0 in the five-match series.
The fifth and final T20I will be played at the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui on Sunday.
