I am looking to add a device which will enable me to add
  • streaming
  • wireless connectivity
  • internet radio
to my audio setup.

After searching a bit found Yamaha WXC-50. This is available on amazon.in .
Are there any other similar device present in the market(India)?

If you're budget is limited, then the Chromecast is one of the best options.
It has wireless connectivity, internet radio and streaming that you are looking for.
However it's a little difficult to find one as it has been discontinued.
If you're budget extends to 50k, then there are other options like the Arcam rplay, Cambridge Cxn, Bluesound Node and Marantz NA6005 at different price points.

Paradigm PW link, Denon Heos link, Blusound node 2i are some of the options available today in market with reasonable prices tag. If budget is not constrained then Cambridge audio, NAD, Marantz etc offers better quality products with similar features.

Thanks for your suggestions. Out of above options these two looks promising
  • Cambridge Cxn
  • Marantz NA6005
Are these available in any store in India and any idea about price in INR?

If you are looking for something really inexpensive with decent quality then checkout Amazon Echo Input. I recently purchased one during holiday sales for just $10. It connects via 3.5mm jack directly to the amp. I'm quite happy with it as it supports both Amazon and Apple Music.

Why don't you try volumio software running on Allo digione signature platform?
seems like a fun project to build and try.

"Amazon Echo Input " - this is fine for my needs as of now. Cheap and decent. Thanks @rahulin
