These file have details about on assembly constituency/parliament name. 
There is no district boundaries or other administrative boundaries 
available. So does it make sense to have them in OSM?

Also before loading to OSM, there are couple of things that we need to take 
1. of course the license itself
2. What attributes from the shapefile we should take? (state name, assembly 
constituency/parliament name, local name,  etc..).

I have found files this  source to have district boundaries and state 
boundaries. No idea abt the license
