Bariatric surgery: I don't know your height to determine BMI. Weight loss surgery is sometimes provided to teens in the United States. I don't know how prevalent that is in India. Have you tried non-surgical approaches to weight loss? If you are evaluated by a bariatric surgeon - s/he could advise as to whether you are a candidate currently.
