Hi Abhishek,   
Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support.   
Your requirement “To show the row index in the row header cell programmatically” can be achieved by using RowHeaderTemplate in SfDataGrid.    
Please refer the below code.    
public partial class MainPage : ContentPage   
              SfDataGrid dataGrid;   
              ViewModel viewModel;   
              public MainPage()   
                             dataGrid = new SfDataGrid();   
                             viewModel = new ViewModel();   
                             this.BindingContext = viewModel;   
                             dataGrid.ColumnSizer = ColumnSizer.Star;   
                             dataGrid.ItemsSource = viewModel.OrdersInfo;   
                             dataGrid.ShowRowHeader = true;   
                             dataGrid.AutoGeneratingColumn += DataGrid_AutoGeneratingColumn;   
                             dataGrid.RowHeaderTemplate = new DataTemplate(() =>   
                                           var label = new Label();   
                                           label.SetBinding(Label.TextProperty, new Binding("Index", BindingMode.Default, null, null, null, null));   
                                           return label;   
                             this.Content = dataGrid;   
              private void DataGrid_AutoGeneratingColumn(object sender, AutoGeneratingColumnEventArgs e)   
                             if (e.Column.MappingName == "Index")   
                                           e.Cancel = true;   
Please refer the following KB for more details. 
We have prepared a sample based on your requirement and it can be downloaded from the below link.
