Yes, similar situation with my device as well (P2XL), haven't received an update. I believe Google is rolling it out in successions based on Geography or based on recency of pixel device. It's just a guess, pretty sure Google can manage worldwide roll out because frankly it's Google. Anyways waiting for getting my hands on the last OS update for my device :(

No update for me either on my 3a XL..are we being deorioritized or what? It's not that all the Asian countries are left out since people over Sri Lanka got that on day one...it's quite disheartening because day one update is one of the few unique selling points of pixel series and Google can't back down their own promise

Guys, you will receive the update OTA if you opt in to the beta programme on an eligible device. I just opted in, and i got the stable update. have to see stability. But google will call out clearly if you are going to install a beta build. One way to get this ota pushed to the phone. Expect to see it over the next few days either ways.

Before you opt to go with hack make sure you read this carefully.

Before you enrol
The updates that you’ll receive as a part of this programme are pre-release versions, and may contain errors and defects that can affect normal functioning of your device.
You will not be able to unenrol and revert back to a lower public release version of Android without first wiping all locally saved data on your device. You may also encounter issues restoring a backup. We recommend reviewing the latest Pixel known issues before enrolling in Android Beta. Note: You will not receive separate monthly security updates while on a beta build.

The easiest way to get the update now in India is opt in for Android 11 beta. Once you do, go to system updates and you will get the Android 11 non beta on your system.

Atleast remove that recommended answer you can see the down votes, can't you? First of all its all but clear that the updates not been released for Indian devices than why insert that Beta BS. Also the guy keeps replying update is rolled out in phased manner. Well the pixels update button is supposed to get the update immediately if available or has Google broken the functionality again?

If you don't want to wait, and I didn't, you can manually flash the android 11 system image from https://developers.google.com/android/images#blueline

Before running the flash-all.bat install script, make sure you remove '-w' flag by editing the script in notepad if you don't want to wipe your data partition. Otherwise your phone will get factory reset and will lose all your apps and locally stored data.

P.S. - make sure you have the latest platform tools from https://developer.android.com/studio/releases/platform-tools and the latest usb drivers from https://developer.android.com/studio/run/win-usb

Guys, just opt in to the beta, you will get the update within seconds. Update it to Android 11 and opt out of the beta. Your device will not be wiped as you are on the latest stable build already.

Os updates & some features are not eligible for India Android user's. This the problem with Android. 

This is not the same with IOS.
If choose to change the mobile better option is iphone.

I am using the Pixel 3a, I was also not getting the update but I read the comments here and decided to join the Beta Program and after joining it, I checked for update from the settings and within a minute I got an update for Android 11. It was so easy. I would recommend that everyone else should also do it.  But make sure you leave the Beta Program after updating to Android 11. Also, backup all your data and reset your phone after leaving the beta program. Many people are complaining that why Google isn't giving first day update on their Pixel phones in India, a major reason because of which people buy Pixel Phones, but the problem here is not Google it is the carriers. Unlike the U.S., there's no carrier model in India, and all phones sold in the country are unlocked versions. That said, local carriers Airtel and Jio have enabled various features like Wi-Fi calling and eSIM in recent years, and it is likely the update is held up for additional carrier testing to make sure these features work as intended.

Its not necessary to reset the device. Even if you opt out of beta after upgrading to android 11, you receive no further update to wipe your device because you are already on the stable version. I successfully updated my Pixel 2 XL by opting in for beta and faced no issue. I opted out of beta immediately after update completed and I have received no further update to wipe my device. Its been more than 36 hours now.
I am using Jio and VoLTE is working fine. No network issues or anything.

The workaround of opting-in for Beta version and then I had got the 11 update. So far smooth and I did not face any issues with the build as this is the final build which is out in the public. I haven't tried the opt-out yet but the info on the website does mention that it would not wipe out the phone as now it is on a public release.
Also, this opt-in does not entitle for an beta for Android 12 as you would have to enroll again.
I'm on Airtel 4G on the Pixel 4 XL and it works like a charm.
I hope the motion sense features get to work soon in India
