I think that you should define WGS_1984_UTM_Zone_44N to these shapefiles. If I do so, the geometry is projected east of the city of Warangal.

I am not sure what your issue is. this is how the layers show up if I open them up at my end:

U also have one more text file inplease add that through add x,y. The shapefiles are not coinciding with the points in the text file.

It appears the incorrect projection is defined for the shapefiles.  When I create a xy features for the included .txt file and define a geographic coordinate system WGS1984 the points align fine with india.  The Shapefiles also have a defined projection of WGS 1984 but the coordinated don't resemble reasonable Lat and Lon values.  It would appear that the projection for these shapefiles has been incorrectly defined.
