At least it should, given that the telugu-desktop task should install
ttf-telugu-fonts....ad I suppose that this package provides fonts that
handle the Telugu script.

Is this package installed at the end of installation ("dpkg -s
ttf-telugu-fonts" will tell you)?

Thanks Christian for the pointers.
Instead of selecting gnome desktop, I opted for installing system utilities. Then I checked the availability for telugu fonts and found it was installed.
I installed gnome-core, xorg and then gdm and found no issue with login screen in Telugu.

The earlier attempt where telugu font display as unicode characters issue was done through a Virtual OS software. May be the problem was related to something else. Anyway I will try a Live debian CD  soon to check whether the problem exists for installation on physical disks.
