Indian parents vaccine Questions - MMR or Measles Vaccine at 9 months?

Query : 
My daughter`s dob is 28thJULY-2015. She is now due for Measles.
Is it better to vaccinate Measles alone or MMR right now_?
Can I vaccinate her Measles vaccine along with JE{japanese encephalitis} vaccine_? 

The Indian Academy of Pediatrics (IAP) is currently recommending MMR at 9 months in place of Measles.
Even the Govt of India is shifting to MR (Measles & Rubella) in place of Measles.

Taking both JE vaccine and MMR vaccine together is generally not an issue.
