No, as far as Indian university & competitive exams are concerned, referring solely to foreign authors is not recommended.
These books are very good for reference purposes.

Actually I cant spend a lot of money on books (due to my financial Condition). So I want to select books which help me to clear university exams and GATE too.

I am in dilemma because usually foreign insist upon logic and university exams are full of Numericals..

In that case, refer to VB Bhandari for Machine Design. I don't know whether automotive mechanics is in in your curriculum or not but if it is then refer to Automobile Engineering by Kirpal Singh. Otherwise you don't need that book.
