Currently the HTC One has been discontinued on flipkart and several other online stores because of a software fault in the camera of htc one.And several people in india who have bought htc one have complained about the same.So yes you do not have htc one available right now and even if you find one there are high chances of it being faulty and as far as software upgrades are concerned htc has already rolled out android 4.3 update for the international htc one.
