After what has been a long wait, Android One user in India has finally started receiving Lollipop update. This is after the company announced that the update was coming in the "next few weeks." However a gradual rollout on a weekly basis has started, so only some selected smartphones will get the OTA update notification.
Caesar Sengupta, Product Management Director at Google took to Google+ to announce the roll out. "To those with Android One phone in India, here's where we are with the over-the-air (OTA) update that will bring Android Lollipop to you soon. We've already started rolling out Lollipop to a small number of phones in India. This is a gradual process and so each week we'll push the OTA update to more phones selected at random (pro-tip: connecting over Wi-Fi will increase your odds). We thank you again for your patience, and please stay tuned for further updates."
There is currently no word on what the update is being rolled out, but it is likely to be the 5.1 version. It is after all the versions running on the Android One smartphones recently launched in Indonesia and Philippines.

As mentioned above, it is a gradual roll out, so you might have to wait a bit till you are notified of the update. As per Sengupta, being connected to a Wi-Fi network improves your chances of being picked.
While Google had promised that Android One smartphones, alongside the Nexus lineup, would be the first to get Android updates, it failed to stick to its promise. Android users in India have seen the likes of Motorola, Xolo and Micromax push updates for their phones before Google. But as they say, better late than never.
