Parking Sensors surely help, but they only do so in Sedans. I have a longish hatch and never really felt the need for one, within a month one gets used to reversing keeping in mind the location.
In hatch, more often than not, the bumper ends about 20 cms from the end of the roofline. Having sensors just give the false impression of empty space while you might be actually backing into a large tree branch. This is easily visible in a cabin mirror, but the added confidence can spoil us to overlook such things. Luggage, a 5th head, rear headrests are other things that can impair such judgements.
Now about Mumbai and Delhi, and Bangalore
It's more of a trend to have fancy stuff added to the car and each city has its preferences. Delhi would surely go for larger stereos, amps, speakers, subs, and in fact many would have a rear mounted camera inside the car (that's how 5 cars with parking sensors) which is compatible to most 2 DIN players.
This trend is not so pronounced in Mumbai and Bangalore, at least not as yet. I could be wrong though. Personally I feel, "seeing is believing" and reversing cameras win over Parking Sensors any day. I would like to see where I am going if at all its possible.
Saving the Bumper
This does not work in Bangalore. Used to travel everyday on Banerghatta Road, Bangalore, and the average was 1 hit every 2nd week in bumper to bumper evening and morning traffic. You may have a sensor, but the fellow behind has his eyes missing
