Now heres the tentative roll-out schedule of Lumia Denim for India. Please note this can completely change as there is no way of verifying the information gathered and it can so happen that Microsoft can change it last minute.

As I mentioned earlier, this is tentative and not firm. Some devices can exchange places or the roll-out itself can completely be altered but on the positive side this information is very latest so the chances of it holding true are also very high.
At the global level, we recently heard of Lumia Denim roll-out to be on track with premium devices surely getting it before the end of December.
