Trying to help :)
Yes dealing with mi3 is kinda diff and bit tuff without sd card.

i had soft bricked the 2 days old phone with cwm recovery and bootloops.
sadly was not able to flash via cwm recovery due to status 7 error.

SO Best method is Hold vol down+power and enter into FAST BOOT mode.

and then download a fastboot rom and flash it through miflash and voila it must work "

No it is global version not chinese. Yes as you mentioned u have indian version hence it is Mi3w (Canro). So you should have no problem.

F.Y. I developer version you will need to download google apps installer separately from Mi store.

Stable it should have the google apps.
