Well that depends, how much wattage does you're PSU provide? And yes, you can overclock it. Not much if on stock cooling. And how, a simple search and reading the stickies is sufficient. There are many tutorials on how to do it lying around.

Edit: I apologize, I was wrong. It is not a K series, so it is locked. So you can not. Thanks for pointing it out Deuce.

No, the i3-3210 cannot be overclocked. The CPU multiplier is locked. Technically speaking if you had the right motherboard you could slightly overclock it by increasing the BCLK, but i am 99% certain that motherboard does not support that.

Well that all depends on your budget and PSU-because a new Motherboard will probably require a new CPU-especially if you want to have a benefit in gaming and overclocking.

The problem isn't just the board, it is the CPU you have. It has a locked multiplier which means even if you get a better board (heck, that board you have may even be able to do it I didn't actually look it up) you would be stuck with a tiny maybe 5% increase before you hit system instability. So you would need a new board and CPU. I don't know how much 15k INR is but if you translate to dollars I can maybe suggest something.

A motherboard won't change much. The power comes from CPU and GPU mostly. But also DRAM, the motherboard is just the controller in a sense.
for ~240 dollars, you'll be looking at:
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor ($109.99 @ Newegg)
Motherboard: ASRock 970 PRO3 R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard ($72.55 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: OCZ ZT 650W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V Power Supply ($49.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $232.53
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

@deuce
15k INR is nearly equal to $245
and should i buy a k series cpu or can i go for a amd one?

No problem. This is a better choice as Intel is more pricier for their performance. 700w is plentiful. But you need to consider your GPU's, as I have no idea what you're using. But you'd be fine with 2 650TI Boosts on 700w and room for overclocking the CPU. But you may want a CoolerMaster EVO for a cooler. Or a Phanteks for 75 dollars, or x60 for 110 dollars. CPU coolers for best performance to the price.
