Get either
HIS RX480 8GB Iceq X2 Roaring Turbo @ 23k
Or
Sapphire RX480 8GB Nitro+ OC @ 23.5k

Both are available from mdcomputers.in

Dont buy from Amazon Global as there wont be any warranty.
Dont go with Gigabyte also

Please mention why don't go with Gigabyte? Any bad experiences/reviews? Any links available?

(I've only ever purchased motherboards from them, never Graphics Cards, and got no complaints on that front).

Please share your experience(s)....

You should go for a free sync monitor if you havent purchased monitor yet (if choosing RX 480)
Samsung curved 1080p freesync monitor is around 13-15k on amazon

For 1080p Gaming & Future Proofing:

Buy the Sapphire RX470 8GB Nitro+ OC @ 20.5k from SAPPHIRE GRAPHICS CARD RADEON RX 470 8GB DDR5 NITRO+ OC

First off, I will say that my decision was based on three things:
1) Future Proofing
2) Price to Performance
3) 1080p Gaming

If you compare the reference specs of the two cards, you see that the RX 470 has only ~89% of the specs of the RX 480.

However, thanks to Sapphire's customizing, that percentage gets bumped up to ~93% with the Nitro+ models. That's because Sapphire has increased the base clock and the memory speed, and thus the memory bandwidth --and they've done a better job with the 470 percentage wise, than with the 480. And that 4% bump is a game changer when you look at the cost.
