When will Android One smartphones receive Android 5.0 Lollipop update?

Micromax Canvas A1, Spice Dream Uno, and Karbonn Sparkle V were released under Google’s Android One initiative. One of the most intriguing aspects about the Android One smartphones was a promise of regular software updates for two years from their release. They were initially launched with Android v4.4 KitKat but now that Android 5.0 Lollipop has been announced by Google, and it has been released for Nexus devices. The question is, when it will be released for Android One devices?
