I'd be rather surprised if we have any building height there.

This query, which would be a suitable way to acquire height data, suggests that there aren't any mapped heights: http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/vU2.

However there are a few "building:levels" mapped which can serve as a rough indicator for building heights: https://overpass-turbo.eu/s/vWt

Any one of you found height for buildings in Chennai?

@vigran09: please click on the overpass-turbo links provided above and click "run". That's what is in the OSM database.

(by the way: I have converted your question from an "answer" into a "comment".)

Yea i saw that. It has only few height data. Is there any other way to find the building heights in anna nagar?? Any other map providers?

Not from OpenStreetMap anyway.
