But C6603s in India do not get any updates at all.... I dont think they realise that they have sold any C6603s in India. I also have a C6603 and I have not got any updates. 

The way I see it is you return your replaced handset and get a C6602 or Flash your phone with the 4.2.2 roms of other countries.

If PC Companion says that you already have the latest software for the phone, the update is not yet available for your device. Since you got a replacement I suggest that you contact the store/service center to confirm that you got the right sales kit/replacement.

Yeah the replacement phone is also a C6603. How come it is possible my earlier device received an 4.2.2 update and this one cannot ?

All devices don't get the update at the same time. There are different customization and such affecting the software. For more information see the following thread:
