      Hi Geetha,

                           Sorry, wrong family and off by quite a way I’m afraid. This is moth belongs to the genus Endoclyta in the family Hepialidae. The general shape, short antennae and relatively complete wing venation (which will be similar of the fore- and hindwings) are diagnostic. There are a number of species in this genus in India but I don’t know which this is.
