GL502VM has been going for around 1300$ (~= 85k) with 16GB RAM, 128GB SSD + 1TB HDD and 6GB 1060. Try to get that. Don't waste money for a 3GB 1060.

Depends on what you can do with 40% perf gain.If you can't even push your current processor beyond 60-70% usage regularly then it is pretty pointless to spend on a new processor.

Actually don't want to spend extra on GPU as it is not in the priority list. What do you say?
Also,
1.GIGABYTE Sabre 15K-KB3 15.6" FHD IPS i7 7th Gen 7700HQ
2.ASUS ROG GL553VE-DS74

How are these ?

If you don't care about the GPU then don't spend more than 1000-1100$ at best. Get the cheaper one with 1050Ti and try to max the screen/ram/ssd out.

How the new i7-8550U stands up against i7-7700HQ? I don't see much difference in performance(notebookcheck) and the GPU combined with 8th gen processors are really poor. My friend is getting at least GT1050 in the same price range. Though it is not priority, it has more value for money for overall configuration

And why one should do so.There never was & never will be a Dell model with similar US specs in India with a reasonable price tag anyway.
Word. No way it will launch within 80K price bracket. Hell, it might even go to 1.3L as per Indian pricing of laptops

Wait for Dell inspiron 7577 to launch in India
For OEMs, 1$ = 100 Rs or even more as per their wish. A 1k$ 7657 sells for freaking 94k here and leeches put TN panel and Single Language Win 10 version on it.
Better to import a laptop with international warranty through a friend. Heck, even if you make a round trip to Dubai to buy it, you'll end up saving MINIMUM of 10k.

Ok guys, update The laptop has arrived India but my friend is yet to get his on it. probably this week he will. We decided to go for MSI GL72M model MSI GL72M 17.3" High Performacne Gaming and Business Laptop PC (Intel i7 Quad Core, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD + 512GB SSD, Nvidia GTX 1050, 17.3" Full HD 1920 x 1080 eDP Display, WiFi, Bluetooth, Win 10 Home) - Newegg.com

He preferred one without HDD and only 512SSD. He already has few HDDs lying around his home, he will keep using them as external disks. I am still not sure about the exact config but I will update here once he gets the laptop. I am very nervous with this brand as few of my (other)friend's friend had MSI laptops, both laptops didn't last longer than a year, both had paid above 90K. I feel like we should have gone for Dell. Any thoughts on this??

Big thanks to all for participating in this thread and giving valuable suggestions.

One more suggestion, if anyone could suggest wireless Keyboard and mouse under 2000 INR, it will be great. He gonna code a lot, keyboard should be comfortable for long usage and he need bigger size mouse. I did check Keyboard mouse combos from Logitech, all had small mouse.
So This need not be a combo, can buy keyboard and mouse of different brands but strictly under 2k. I already asked him to stretch from 1.5K.
Suppose we buy keyboard and mouse from different brands then we need to plug two receivers in laptop,each for keyboard and mouse or one 2.4GHz receiver will be fine??

Few keys like R, C, F, 0,9 and few more suddenly stops responding and we need to have lot of patience until they start working again. It's random. Not like when laptop is in high temps. My friend is really frustrated with this now. Upon searching for solution online, he found out that it's common issue in MSI laptops. I thought a US product will be made of better components than Indian counterparts but I was so wrong. This is really upsetting.
