Post from MIUI Forum admin says,
MIUI ROM has been updated regularly ever since its first version was released. And MIUI Team has been committed to providing the best experience to users of all devices. Therefore, MIUI performance is constantly improved to deliver a better and better system experience to all users. However, to ensure the best performance of MIUI, we have to make a tough decision of suspending the update of 6 devices after a long-time discussion and evaluation about the release time of devices, active users, hardware performance, etc.
MIUI 9 Global Stable ROM for the above mentioned devices and Redmi 1S will be released in December-January and it will be the last MIUI Global Stable update for all these devices.
Xiaomi has also suspended MIUI Global Beta ROM updates (Closed Beta and Public Beta) for these devices with immediate effect from 17th November saying that MIUI Global Beta 7.11.16 is the last Global Beta update for above mentioned devices.
