sorry for my late reply(all coz of my inconsistant connection)
for 15K budget you have
1)SX240Hs - FOR- Superb image quality and acceptable results even at iso 1600
compact body
CHDK - adds RAW and many other features that other cameras in this price range dont.
2)PANASONIC LUMIX TZ25 -FOR- good image quality
superb image stabilization and optics
quick and responsive
good looks
If you can take up a bridge style camera then you can look for
3)Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ47 -FOR- bright F2.8 lens and superb optics
fast annd reaponsive camera
adds up EVF (useful in sunny day)

Fujifilm FinePix S6800,FujiFilm FinePix F850EXR and FUJIFILM HS25 EXR are also worth looking for(but image quality is not as great as others but features surely are except RAW)
I would put nikon s9400 last coz of 18mp sensor and limited controls.

I think you have already narrowed down. Only SX240/SX260 fits this criteria.

online and store(hyderabad) are both fine by me.

No touchscreen
Preferably no wifi/gps as they only tend to increase the cost and there wont be need of it.

Anything else you would like to tell us?
As i have mentioned, i hv to gift it to an uncle of mine.
He most probably will use it for the occasional family photos and the lot.
pls dont suggest fujifilm. i hv seen photos clicked by higher end models of fujifilm cameras and was left disappointed.
i m a lil partial towards panasonic/nikon but there is no obligation.
