I'm Bristow, pre final year B-tech student from India. I would like to
contribute to the tux4kids community. I need to know whether svg support is
added to tuxpaint. Looking forward for your replies.

Tux Paint already supports SVG. It is currently only used for Stamp
artwork, but once the UI system is updated to allow for differently-sized
elements (buttons, dialog boxes, etc.), SVG will become useful for UI artwork
as well. But it should be trivial to utilize what we have for that.
(In fact, we should do that soon, anyway, to support SVGs in the UI,
even if they can't scale abitrarily, yet.)
BTW - Whenever anyone brings up the topic of SVG support in TuxMath and
TuxType as a GSOC project (I guess it's in this year's "ideas" list again),
I make a point to mention that Tux Paint already has some code, which
shouldn't be _terribly_ difficult to port over to the other two apps.
