Abstract A single unicast index coding problem (SUICP) with symmetric neighboring interference (SNI) has $K$ messages and $K$ receivers, the $k$th receiver $R_{k}$ wanting the $k$th message $x_{k}$ and having the interference with $D$ messages after and $U$ messages before its desired message. Maleki \textit{et. al.} derived the lowerbound on the broadcast rate of this setting to be $D+1$. In our earlier work, for SUICP(SNI) with arbitrary $K,D$ and $U$, we defined set $\mathbf{S}$ of 2-tuples and for every $(a,b) \in \mathbf{S}$, we constructed $b$-dimensional vector linear index code with rate $D+1+\frac{a}{b}$ by using an encoding matrix of dimension $Kb \times (b(D+1)+a)$. In this paper, we use the symmetric structure of the SUICP(SNI) to reduce the size of encoding matrix by partitioning the message symbols. The rate achieved in this paper is same as that of the existing constructions of vector linear index codes. More specifically, we construct $b$-dimensional vector linear index codes for SUICP(SNI) by partitioning the $Kb$ messages into $b(U+1)+c$ sets for some non-negative integer $c$. We use an encoding matrix of size $\frac{Kb}{b(U+1)+c} \times \frac{b(D+1)+a}{b(U+1)+c}$ to encode each partition separately. The advantage of this method is that the receivers need to store atmost $\frac{b(D+1)+a}{b(U+1)+c}$ number of broadcast symbols (index code symbols) to decode a given wanted message symbol. We also give a construction of scalar linear index codes for SUICP(SNI) with arbitrary $K,D$ and $U$. We give an improved upperbound on the braodcast rate of SUICP(SNI).
