this is all australian parts
http://au.pcpartpicker.com/p/2D9q1
cpu: amd fx 6300
cpu cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212X 82.9 CFM CPU Cooler
gpu: MSI GeForce GTX 660 2GB Video Card
ram: A-Data XPG V2 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
mobo: Gigabyte GA-970A-D3P ATX AM3+/AM3 Motherboard
case: Corsair 200R ATX Mid Tower Case
psu: Antec High Current Gamer 520W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply

this would be a good build because the cpu has 6 cores clocked at 3.5ghz and with that cpu cooler you chould overclock it pretty well. it was hard to get you this build considering it's a media build but it should be good. it also has 16gb of 1600 mhz memory that should be fine for what you need it for. if it was a gaming/streaming build i would of gotten 8gb instead of 16gb and got the gtx 760.

ps. it's about 50 dollars above your budget which is about 2000 rupee's

go for an AMD card instead, like an R9 270x or R9 270, the new GCN cards have proven to be excellent at OpenCL and OpenGL accelerated apps like Maya, 3DSMax, and others, and perform much better than their Nvidia counterparts at a similar price.

give me a few minutes and I'll edit with my suggested build also

Edit:
Intel Pentium G2120
A pentium dual core processor, and don't let the pentium name fool you, this is basically an i3 3210 without hyperthreading, it'll still perform strong enough for your needs, Maya and Autodesk apps in general will require a strong GPU so I decided to go just a little bit weaker here to match budget.

Asus B75 Motherboard
inexpensive and compatible, Asus is a good brand.

Kingston HyperX 8GB RAM
only single stick but honestly the difference between 2 and 1 channel is small at best for the average user, it won't affect you much at least.

Seagate Barracude 1 TB hard drive
standard hard drive, reliable company

AMD R9 270
Sapphire is a good company, and the R9 270 is a good card, AMD cards perform better in OpenCL and OpenGL apps so this card will help you accelerate your Maya faster.

Corsair CX500W PSU
Corsair's value line of PSUs, they are not the best, have iffy capacitors, but are good enough and will cause no problems whatsoever, good for the price.

I couldn't find computer cases on flipkart so that will be up to you to find, but I left around 10000 rupees to get a case and windows (windows seems to cost 8000 rupees, so you might have to go over budget just a little bit to find a decent case, I recommend NZXT 210 Source, Corsair 200R, Antec 100, or Fractal Design 1000 if you can find those)

will it need 16 GB RAM and 6 cores as I have read that mostly 6 cores not usually fully utilized?
I am in Chennai,Tamilnadu,India and I am not familiar with buying parts and assembling ...
I have just read few articles
I am not sure how to get started, will suggest me how to proceed ?
Can I buy online or visit computer store and ask them to assemble ?
If I buy online, How can I assemble ?
Which one would be the best option ?
In the link you have provided, I noted a warning about incompatibility issues !!

AMD cards are alright, it's the drivers that are less reliable compared to Nvidia GTX, BUT their drivers have been good lately, you will encounter no problems as a consumer. You can rely on AMD no problem.

you won't need 16 GB of RAM because it doesn't help with Maya or other Auto desk functions, rendering scenes is all from your CPU and GPU power.
you can order the parts online at a site (like flipkart which I linked to parts with), and have it shipped to you, you can assemble yourself or pay a computer store to assemble for you.
If you want to assemble it yourself to save money, I recommend you watch videos online on how to do it, it's pretty easy, all you need is a screwdriver, just be careful because parts are delicate :)

Will You suggest me a better processor if I could add few thousand bucks to my budget ?
If I buy all these parts suggested by you will they be compatible with each other ?
My primary use is for those softwares but can these config be good for gaming too ?

yes if you can add a few thousand more rupees to the budget I can definitely get you an i3 or maybe even an i5

they are all compatible with each other :) 

and yes it'll be good enough for gaming too, the R9 270 is a mid ranged card that can play all modern games on 1080p resolution, and the CPU is nothing weak either, if I suggest a stronger CPU it'll be even better

Edit: if you can add about 6000 to your budget, I can fit in a
Intel Core i5 3450
to the build :)  this is a really strong processor, it will handle anything you want it to, and will turn your computer into a very potent work and gaming machine
