My Android Market is still Android Market. I am eager to update it manually, but I prefer official way when payment is involved.

In India, only app store is available.. no music, book and movie store. So, I have been guessing maybe it'll not be pushed to India. Is there any such policies?

The "Market" to "Play" renaming is just a re-branding of the store. It won't change any of the underlying availability or features. You will have to ask Google (good luck!) about if/when additional feature will be made available in India. So there is nothing to be gained by "upgrading", other than satisfying the Google marketing department.

Here are some details from the Google Play FAQ:

Q: What types of content are available in my country?
* Paid Apps: Available in these countries
* Movies: Available in US, UK, Canada, and Japan
* eBooks: Available in US, UK, Canada, and Australia
* Music: Available in US

Today, I've got update at last... I've been asked to accept Google Play TOS.. And, everything is same. Even launcher icon is still labeled as "Market".. – Evil Angel Mar 8 '12 at 6:14
Finally, I have got fully rebranded app. But, only Apps and Games are available.. – Evil Angel Mar 10 '12 at 11:48

As PT says, the update will be made in India, but the movies etc, wont be available in India. Its only the name and the icon of the Market/play app which will change.. Maybe sometime in the future we will get the other services...
