As Ram shows in the screencast above[0], this only occurs when the platforms/android-mnc folder still exists in the users android-sdk. If that folder is removed, we correctly display and use android-23 (6.0).

I have checked this issue with following builds:

Xamarin Studio: 5.11 (build 85)
Mono 4.3.0 (explicit/a427d86)
GTK+ 2.24.23 (Raleigh theme)
Package version: 403001201
Xamarin.Android : (Enterprise Edition)
SDK Tools Version: 24.3.4
SDK Platform Tools Version: 23
SDK Build Tools Version: 23 rc3
java version "1.7.0_65"
=== Build Information ===
Release ID: 511000085
Git revision: d9cae847e9821fba45c7c0afe73f94be93c8b411
Build date: 2015-09-12 12:54:01-04
Xamarin addins: 8b2b52b5972a87f8d1f3d22414b76a6819767f5c
Build lane: monodevelop-lion-master

Now android designer shows the new API level "Android 6.0(v23)". 

This issue has been fixed. Hence I am closing this issue.
