Hi Naveen,

The India:Roads OSM wiki page[1] has some status on the percentage of SH 
roads mapped and other details, although I couldn't see much recent 
updates on individual State pages except in Karnataka[2] and Kerala[3] 
State pages. From the wiki page, it looks like much of the Haryana[4], 
Karnataka, Maharastra[5] and Rajasthan[6] State Highways are completed. 
But it may also be the case that other States' SH might have been done 
but not updated on the OSM wiki page.
