However, some updates and reinstalling the search app ...

Solved it! I realised that I had set Language to 'English(UK)' (under 'voice' settings of the Google Now app) and apparently hotword detection currently works only with English(US) (In my case, the offline voice recognition package I had installed was 'English(US)' , but language was English(UK) )!

If you go to google now, and then go to settings (the three dot menu button if its a soft key) theres a section that says notifications.
