Fluency in English speaking can only be achieved with a lot of speaking practice. Think about people around you who speak good English - most of them went to English medium schools or had an environment at home which gave them enough speaking practice.
For someone who did not have an environment which would facilitate English speaking skills, the only option is to get lots and lots of speaking (actually, conversation) practice, get over your fear of speaking wrong and become fluent.
If you want quick results, you should join the new practice based fluency programs in the market. If you do not want to spend money and are ok with taking more time, find some friends with whom you can daily converse in English and who will help you correct your mistakes in a kind way.

Dear Ridhima,
Members have given very practical and wise suggestions.
I suggest , that in addition, "listen' to new from papers like "Mint".There is this option in epaper.You just need a net connection and a computer.
This way you can listen to news in English and repeat same news till you are clear about pronunciations of words.
Then read the same news yourself to practice.
Do not worry, it is not a difficult language to learn and master.

Dear Ridhima,
Don`t lose your confident and try to make some creation at your work.
I agreed with my respected senior but my little suggestion is, you become a Cinelovers for english/non regional movie.
Tips for Cinelovers :-
when u see a movie please read subtitle of the movie, if you wish to mute tv voice then make your comminucation better early.

Hi Ridhima
I think there are a lot of people who practically help people achieve what you want to achieve...
Recently, my company too started taking communication skills training... We use Transaction Analysis and Systems Thinking to assist the participants learn and its extremely effective. Material is pretty proprietary.
If you have a basic requirement, please go ahead and engage one of the trainers who have responded. Its never too late to invest in yourself! If you are looking for some specialized knowledge, then you might want to consider a program like ours.

Hi Ridima,

First of all, never think that you cannot do, always keep your confidence levels high.

It is very easy to speak like an expert, you just need some basics and grooming.

You will be able to speak fluently in English, just keep speaking and follow these simple tips:

1. Watch your favorite cartoons in English- This may sound childish but its really works because they use very simple and understandable language.

2. The more you listen the more you could grasp to keep listening to some movies which are in simple and plain English.

3. Watch Listen to some English songs/ Albums with lyrics displayed for few days and try to listen to them with-out lyrics and try to sing along.- This improves the listening skill which in-turn improves your speaking skill.

4. Refer primary level grammar books (6th to 10th grade) instead of high-level grammar books.

5. You may be having good friends around you, speak to them in English everyday (even though they tease you initially, they will definitely co-ordinate)

6. Read Indian English Novels initially and go for foreign author novels. And refer a good dictionary whenever you find a new word.

7.Take some case study and try to work on that.

8. Create a play with 2 or 3 characters and do that Play with your friends in English Dialogues - this is so fun doing and helps you out improving speaking skills and spontaneous speaking.

9.Watch news in English.

10. Last and very important, take a topic and speak with yourself in-front of a mirror. This gives self-motivation, improves your presenting skill along with fluency in English.

Hope you will try these tips and come-up with best results.

Wish you all the best.

Nice suggestion but please stop using all CAPS while commenting. It's totally unnecessary!
I just want to point out that while it's good to be encouraging, it's not fair to give unrealistic hopes. Someone mentioned that you can be fluent in English easily. Um..not really. I agree that English is an easy language in comparison to many of the Indian languages. However, it still needs a lot of practice to attempt perfection.
That being said, it is possible, but I strongly advise Practice, practice and more practice.
