Thanx Shuvam! for a nice&quick response.
(1) did you opted for MMX service center for 4.2.1 update??
(2) Have you rooted your phone afterwards ??
This is what I am wondering...rooting gave me the firewall power....3G, Wi-Fi and Roaming options...do we have similar controls in 4.2.1 update ??

Please give u... more1. Updating the software via Micromax service center is safe and secure, but updating the software by yourself can potentially brick your phone if you don't do it step by step.
2. No screen flickering, i haven't experienced any.
3. Battery drops from 30% to 15%, it happens every time, it was present in Android 4.1.2 jellybean as well.
4. Camera quality has improved and there's a new feature by the name of panorama in the camera application.
5. Yes, it can be rooted afterwards, there are a lot of "How to" guide for it on the Internet.
6. Applications gets installed on SD card after Android 4.2.1 and GPS gets locked in just a minute.
7. The UI is much fluid and smooth now, and almost no bugs found.

To stop access to Internet by applications, you can simply go to settings> Data usage> press the menu key> untick "Auto Sync" and click on background data, tap on it when it appears in the status bar. Rooting is a complex stuff and many don't want to root their droids because it voids the warranty.

I also faced the same problem, the solution that I have is to ROOT the phone and have FireWall. I have used 'avast' antivirus software's inbuilt firewall. It's a free software on Play Store.
In the firewall, 3 options are there: Wi-Fi, 3G and Roaming. You can enable/disable each of three for each-n-every application of you mobile!
That's the way I can restrict Internet use by different apps.

Sometimes it just happens due to radio waves constantly changing or weather conditions. Aircel SIM doesn't work on my Samsung but works on my old Nokia, so that be a problem in case the SIM isn't designed to support 900/2100 MHz spectrum. So, use Vodafone.
