Sujjan and Abhijit produced matching scores of six-under-66 to establish a one-stroke lead at the Rs 1 crore event.
Noida's Gaurav Pratap Singh and Delhi's Honey Baisoya were joint third with scores of five-under-67.
Sujjan, a consistent performer in the 2016 PGTI season with four top-10s to his name, had a promising start to the week as he made the turn at two-under on day one thanks to two birdie conversions from 15 to 30 feet.
The 36-year-old Sujjan, a winner of three titles, seemed to be in prime form on the front-nine when he drove the green on the first and followed that up with a 15-feet eagle conversion. He then went on to chip-in for birdie on the next before sinking a 20-footer for another birdie on the fourth.
The bogey on the sixth came against the run of play but was neutralised by Sujjan's last birdie on the eighth.
Sujjan's city-mate Abhijit posted an error-free 66 to join the former at the top of the heap. Abhijit began the tournament with a birdie, as he too drove the first green like Sujjan.
From there on, the 25-year-old Abhijit, added four more birdies to his card, largely thanks to some great wedge shots. He nailed his longest putt of the day, a 25-footer on the 15th, for his last birdie.
Gaurav and Honey both delivered bogey-free rounds of 67 to be tied third. Gaurav was one-under till the 12th but then had a late flourish with four birdies on the last six as he got a hang of the green-speed.
Honey, the runner-up in Chennai last week, continued his hot streak with another low score. He got going with four birdies in his second half on the back-nine.
Bengaluru-based Rahil Gangjee, the Panchkula duo of Shubhankar Sharma and Angad Cheema and Noida's Amardip Sinh Malik were bunched together in tied fifth with identical scores of four-under-68.
Among the 11 players who shared ninth place at three-under-69, were local favourite S Chikkarangappa, Jyoti Randhawa, Bengaluru-based amateur Jaibir Singh and Sri Lankan Mithun Perera.
