please don't ask a new question in an answer. What do you mean by "proper coordinates"? Maybe you want to guess the projection system of your coordinates.

have you tried converting from UTM 41N? (to whatever "proper coordinates" are)

These appear to be based on the INDIA Grid Zone 1A. If this is so these points all drop in a few km se of Kandh Kot. I entered them into Garmin's BaseMap program and then exported them to Google Earth to view them. Hope this helps.

You should go back to your data source and ask them what projection they use. If they're not avaialable, ask at a place where there are a lot of Pakistani GIS specialists. Then learn about convertion of coordinates. There are several ways to do this. If you need them for a web application, I suppose you want them converted to WGS 84.
