Regarding the price, we can see a lot of comments in Xiaomi Nepal Facebook page for the huge price difference in Nepal, China, India and other countries. For this phone also, the price of 3GB and 4GB version are 11,000 and 13,000 Indian rupees respectively. That translates to Rs 17,600 and Rs 20,800 respectively. Comparing this with the price in Nepal, it comes around Rs 7000 to 8000 more. Xiaomi Nepal has more to say on this regarding the custom taxes and the small no of sales. But people are not convinced with it.
