Hi Aditya,
The OSM database does not include a lot of elevation data (unless anyone has
tagged peaks etc. with elevation data).  There are a couple of 'recipes' for
adding SRTM elevation data to OSM derived maps at

Dealing with the SRTM data is a bit fiddly, so I have sometimes fancied
setting up a server to serve tiles on the same projection etc. as the OSM
slippymap to make it easy to process, but I have never got around to doing
