Xiaomi debuted in Indian market earlier this month. The Xiaomi Mi3 first went on sale in India on 22 July, at that time the device went out of stock in 40 minutes. After that second lot of sale began earlier today and surprisingly it went out of stock in just 5 seconds!!
Xiaomi confirmed the news through its social media accounts:

While, Xiaomi has not announced that how many units of Mi3 were fot sale. But whatever may be the case, Inventory going out of stock in 5 seconds sounds fishy to me. All this indicates that all this is a marketing strategy from Xiaomi.
First of all Xiaomi should fill its inventory with lots of stock and then it should begin the sale. Well we can just suggest, the final decision comes from Xiaomi team only.
Xiaomi has now started taking per-registrations for the sale which will begin on 5 August. The device is now up for Registration on Flipkart for next lot of sale which will begin from 5 August.
