Jamshedpur extended their lead after 31 minutes but failed to withstand a comeback from Kerala, with two second half goals in 15 minutes earning a draw for the away side.
The result means unbeaten Jamshedpur stay in fourth position on the Indian Super League table, but have one win and four draws from their five games.
Their next match comes at home against Goa on Friday morning (AEDT).
