Hi Raja,
Some of these questions are discussed in the JavaRanch SCJD FAQ.

There is no time limit on the assignment. You can take as long as you like.
How long it takes is up to you. I have seen some people complete it in around 3 weeks (40 hours / week), and I have seen at least one person who took over 3 years.
Some countries require you to purchase the exam voucher at the same time as the assignment. If India requires you to do that, then you may find that the voucher has an expiry date.

Single tier & two tier application. You will have to develop a GUI application which will update a datafile using classes you write to access that file. Your GUI will have to work in either single tier mode, or two tier, using a network server that you will have to write.

Here in Australia we have to purchase the assignment through Sun. They contact Prometric who enable the assignment download via certmanager.

Hi Raja,
I am not sure yet - I am coming to the end of a sabatical from work / looking for work. So I don't know yet how my certifications will affect anything.
Regards, Andrew
