Ok you need the below files :
SP flash tool preferably v3.13 as v3.12 gives errors
The official rom provided in above link
And your phone obviously
And micromax a116 usb drivers

Steps :

Install the drivers if you have driver issues check threads on that
After installing the drivers extract the firmware in the .rar file also extract sp tools and run as admin.
Select the scatter option and select the file MT6589_Android_scatter_emmc.txt and hit ok
Check all options are checked n go to tools and see its forced to high speed
Now most important part hit upgrade firmware and not download it will search 4 your phone then connect your phone without sim and battery it will install it a green circle pops up means u r done.
Now start the phone and leave it aside as a TP update message will pop up now do not touch the phone or touch screen at that point even when it asks to hit OK dont touch it it will automatically update it leave the phone even if screen goes off hit the unlock button after 10 mins but dont touch thr screen
When it says upgrade completed then you are done ...
DO NOT TOUCH YOUR PHONE WHILE THE FIRST REBOOT AS TP IS UPGRADING...IF YOU TOUCH IT EVEN TO PRESS OK IT WONT WORK AND PHONE WILL LOSE ITS TOUCH
After TP Upgrade completes it will look like the image in attachments then PRESS OK and you are done
Hope this helps you if you have any problem feel free to ask

I am replying to this thread on my phone itself and checking every thing i can.
The screen looks better and no lags on stock launcher
Speaker during calls works perfectly and we can move apps to external sd without issues
Camera has improved but i am not satisfied with photosphere and i need to test it further.
I also had a problem in messaging for idea sim to enable cell broadcast and that was same in previous version .. It may b Sim card fault as loop works fine..
Will be testing it all out tonight


Added screens for the Micromax OTA software updater showing system upto date
Also no issues with the net connection 3g or wifi
Gps locks location quickly too

So dumb of me, i had to remove battery and sim and then connect, i was trying to connect directly first, thought i should connect without battery once it gets detected when phone is one.

its working.. 60% now.. fingers crossed.
