Samsung has started rolling out Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update for the Galaxy S4 in India. As per the confirmation by the XDA forum member iamkiu, all Galaxy S4 (GT I 9500) users will receive the OTA (over the air) notification on their device shortly. The update can also be installed via Samsung Kies.
The Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update (build number: LRX22C.19500XXUHOAA) for Galaxy S4 has a massive 991MB in size, so it will take some times to complete the update.

However, users can reinstall them once the installation has finished.
The new Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update brings new features, lots of customization options, new Material Design user interface, and performance improvements with ART runtime, system animation, extended battery life and many more to your device. You can experience a whole new Galaxy S4.
