Default Weak clutch on Esteem - Car speed not matching engine RPM

I have 20001, MPFI Esteem, 65k-Odo, clutch yet to replaced. Seems to be a weak clutch issue as my car speed is slightly out of sync with engine RPM. At higher RPM's car speed seems to be 5-10 kmph less than it should be. My question is what do I need to replace out of these 3 - Cluth plates, pressure plates and release bearing.
My undrstanding is release bearing comes into play to interrupt power transfer from engine to wheels. So this doesn't need replacement. Is that right?
Also clutch is hard as well which it should be for 65k.

Thanked: Once

Overhaul, including the three parts and labour would cost you under Rs.3000. Go for a Ceekay assembly.
