A: 3G, 4G would be an added advantage

5. Do you have any brand preference or dislike? Please name them.
A: Xiaomi mobiles, because of lots of custom ROMs support. Am using Pie in RN3, thanks to Havoc - while the official MIUI stopped providing update after Nougat.

6. What is your intended use for this phone (internet, camera, multimedia, mails etc.)?
A: Camera, mails and internet

9. Any other requirements?
A: Need good battery backup

10. If you have already considered a phone, then please mention the model
Redmi Note 7S & Redmi Note 7P 4GB versions @ 13k & 14k respectively.

More Info:
Currently using RN3(SD) for last 3 years with Havoc & RRemix ROMs. In recent times, the battery backup is very less as it maybe wearing out and i will replace it in the near future.
With all the buzz about RN7 and am thinking of buying a new mobile (after 3 years), i zeroed on this. I truly dont care much about camera - Being 7S using 660 SD and 7P using 675 SD, will the 1k i pay extra for 7P make a difference?

Also is it wise to wait till 17th july, as Flipkart will be hosting "Mobile Bonanza sale", to get the mobile with 10% discount offer?

It's possible with overlap in different series'. For your needs, 7S would suffice as it has the same cam as the 7P.
