Initially, Motorola did say that the Moto 360 will initially be in limited stock on Flipkart, and more stock will be added in two weeks. Given the limited initial supply of the device combined, it seems that the response has not been too encouraging and it's been treated as a mere accessory.

For the reminder, the Moto 360 retail for Rs. 17,999 in the country and is the most expensive Android Wear device available onto market right now. The watch has a 1.56-inch circular 320x290p display, and is powered by TI OMAP 3 processor.
