The update is available in India, I have received a formal communication from Nokia advising me of the same. I wanted to post the email received however, due to GSMArena's spam stuff can't post it. Please plug your device and check.

From XDA: While an early leak might have hopefully suggested that Nokia were ready to offer an OS refresh to its first-generation Lumia owners, the company has now explained to Tweakers that those early glimpses of Windows Phone 7.8 were for pre-production models and, presumably, all part of the software testing process. We've stopped clicking the update button, (reluctantly) unplugged our Lumia 800 and are waiting on that Q1 refresh. However, if you're willing to tinker with your Windows Phone's inner workings for the taste of a new OS, there are ways.
