Micromax is liable to breach of GPLv2 if they dont provide the source code .they are handing out phones with android whose kernel is Linux which is under GPLv2 .Other parts are under Apache 2.0 which is a bit relaxed on manufacturers .
Micromax cant deny source code if you have requested to study it .
In fact ,they may be asked to stop distribution of linux kernel based devices if violations is proved .
Thats why almost all reputed companies have a Open source center like Sony,Samsung,Lg,HTC......
In fact they have to write a notice that the source code is available on request on the website or instruction manual of device .
You can find the details of license in settings--->About Phone --->Legal Information .
Android Open Source Project is made up of GPL and Apache .
They will need to provide source .
Even if Micromax is just a distributor ,they have to provide the source or atleast guide you towards the source .They cant hide or deny a copyleft object .
