Generally no. But yes if retrieving the key through index is faster than
going through the hash buckets. 

Currently I am thinking there could be 100s of million or billion of rows
and in that case if we have to retrieve a row which one will be fast going
through hash bucket or index? I am thinking in such scenario Index would be
faster. Please help me understand where I am going wrong. Some example will
be helpful.
