Missing features of wp8.1/Cyan update in Lumia 720 in India are as follows according to me:-
1. Lumia Cyan brings ability to stop use of Cellular data for limited Wi-Fi connectivity
2. Brightness slider. It seems my phone no sliders.
3. USB settings are hidden too
4. Display color profile has enhanced look, but in Lumia 720 it is same
5. Is contact photos from Facebook is blurred for all when we receive or dial call?
6. Live Tiles ? mark as red by swiping from the left over the Tile, how?
7.Moreover which app can't installed on SD card?

More questions:-
like in wp8.0 app data can de deleted by uninstall app or change date, so in wp8.1 with both? & how can we check app data?
soft reset button same?
if my apps are on memory card then I will hard reset phone, then apps also deleted?

Same here, I don't see brightness profile after updating to Cyan in 720. No, If your app are on memory card they wont be deleted, after hard reset they will be installed. don't forget to back-up your settings before hard reset.

If hard reset done with fresh slate, still app remain on memory card?
Moreover which app can't installed on SD card?

Yes they will still remain on SD card as long as you don't format memory card.
Whats app, facebook messenger, nextgen reader are few of app which cant installed on SD card.

2. This is not enabled (yet) on WP 8.0 Lumias (except the 1520)

5. The pic is blurred initially but after sync, it clears the picture

6. Is not a missing feature for the 720 it's a feature that does not exist on Windows phone (yet)

False, when phone restarts after hard reset, it says "apps detected on sd card, you have to delete them before installing new apps"
And FYI, i had created back up of everything.

You did something wrong. AND FYI. after hard reset when you enter your email phone gives two options asking start with fresh install or from back-up, click on back-up. and from your start screen lay-out to messages, call history, and all applications are there after some time.

It is normal, i usually cancel that process as it takes very long time. Also, everything works fine after that.

I had hard reseted my phone about 5-6 times in past. I know the procedure very well. When we enter email id, it says "backup detected, do you want to restore". On the restoration, we get the start screen layout, messages, contacts restored. And now coming to apps, apps don't get restored, we only get the app list, and all the apps you had before hard reset starts downloading on their own from the store. And as i also told peviously after hard reset phone asks us to delete the app data from the sd card.

Brightness slider is not enabled for older Lumias. Facebook and outlook contacts are not merged because you'll have to download Facebook app and merge them manually, this has changed with WP 8.1

Can't understand your problem ?
If you are talking about the app loading time after soft reset or restart, then that is normal. Apps stored on sd card takes time to load again.

I use Lumia 720 and it is not a bug. If we have lots of apps on sd card, then phone takes time to read apps on the card on restart. And this process only takes 15-20 secs. I have around 10 GB apps on my sd card.
