So there are no custom roms for mediatek s ?
very few but all of them are buggy as hell & CyanogenMod is not supporting either. They are based on CM but are mere ports by third party amateur developers.
If you don't have the access to kernel then you can not create custom Roms which helps to leverage the true potential of the SoC.

As far as Micromax is concerned, all I can say is, stay away from their offerings unless you dont have any option which now is not the case with the direct entry from Chinese counterparts. They were selling Chinese rebranded products and this strategy clearly backfired due to lack of in house R&D & future insight.
Samsung with its J series lineup has retained the no. 1 spot in sub 7K-15K segment which is approx 55% of the market share.
With the advent of Android N, Google is hitting the bulls eye with features/customization which were once used to be the glore of CM but not anymore.
On the otherhand, CM was always used to be buggy. Yu Yureka, Yuphoria are the examples from Indian approach as not many were inclined towards the beasty OnePlus One. Customers swear by the third class support that was provided to them by YU & Cyanogen itself.
Cyanogen is now becoming more like a bloatware ROM which started incorporating bloats like Truecaller -The biggest privacy invasion mankind has ever seen, MS Apps (after taking stake in the company) etc. etc.

So, my advice & recommendation is to buy a device which is in constant development and offers latest patches/OS upgrades whenever they are released. Thats why I always recommend Nexus devices if someone can not afford the high priced flagships & is on a tight shoe lace string budget then Android One based Handheld devices are way to go..... :)
