iPhone 6 and 6 Plus price in India justified?

I guess you all might have googled iphone prices in India. As seen on eBay India, the current pricing [For the Models Ready to Buy] is Rs.79,999 for 16GB iPhone 6 and Rs.1,28,000 for 16GB iPhone 6 Plus.

1. Is this price justifiable?

2. How many of you would like to even own this device?

3. What is the company trying to gain by giving out such insane prices for an enlarged iPhone experience as seem on many reviews on YouTube?

P.S.: The official launch for iPhone will begin by October 17th 2014 in India. These prices could vary by 17th October 2014.

I thought it's somewhere in the Rs. ~60K range. I think 1,28,000 for iPhone 6 Plus is completely justified because it has a phone too and can run whatsapp and FB...

PS: OnePlus One! FTW!

Ah! Another iShit in the town. Not really surprised with the prices though. Apple is here to stay. With the number of riches increasing, I guess it'll find many buyers who thinks of it as a fashion/status icon rather than a smartphone(or a gadget for that sake).
The prices on ebay are like that everytime an iPhone is launched. The dubious sellers on ebay procure the handset from abroad and then sell them to indian customers at ridiculous prices. This happened the last time too with the iPhone 5S as @Ambarish Ganesh points out in this article below.

The weirdest thing is that 11 folks have bought the iPhone 6 Plus at these rates. 😲. I can think of better ways to spend this kind of moolah.
Ahem..

Of course one should spend Rs.80.5K on 128 GB iPhone Plus because you can.

For the record's sake, I'm waiting for platinum plated iPhone so that I can send whatsapp messages effectively and more efficiently.
