Xiaomi Redme 1S will be interesting for you. However, they are not selling the devices now AFAIK. At this budget, you will have Moto E available from Flipkart. Also, Lenovo and Panasonic have few models available. I don't have much idea about Microsoft(Nokia) phones.

Xiaomi Redmi 1S is slated to be on sale from 23rd December on Flipkart. It is an excellent device for the price you pay. If you increase your budget a little bit, I would suggest you to buy the Xiaomi Redmi Note instead for Rs. 8999.

Alternatively, Micromax Unite 2 and Nokia Lumia 520 are also good options.

    There are so many phones under Rs 8000, but I really would suggest some which is not because I like it, its because it really is awesome! Firstly lets have Motorola's Moto E. It comes with a 4.3Inch decent display with ~256 ppi. It runs on a 1.2GHz cortex A7 Dual core processor. Camera quality is also very neat, it has a 5 MP primary camera and no secondary camera. It has a 4GB internal storage and has a microSD slot. It also comes with a 1GB RAM. It is powered by 1980mAh battery. Moto E is priced Rs 6999.(only available on Flipkart)

    Next we have the Nokia Lumia 530. Its a very handy device. It has a 4Inch screen which is good. It has a 1GHz quad core processor with 512GB RAM(but its really fast and never hangs). The device has a 5MP primary camera and no secondary camera. It runs on Windows 8.1 and has a pretty decent battery backup. It is priced Rs 5600.
