A very good book for getting started with PyQt is 'Rapid GUI
Programming with Python ant Qt' by Mark Summerfield . Unfortunately
there is no Indian Edition of this book. A sample chapter of the book
which covers "Introduction to GUI programming" is available here:
This chapter covers some of the Qt basics like Signal and Slots,
providing code samples using PyQt.

The below URL lists a handful of useful PyQt tutorials:

Going through some of the tutorials listed above would help you to
start writing GUI applications using PyQt. Also remember what PyQt
provides is a set of Python bindings to the Qt framework. Once you get
a fair understanding to write sample GUI applications using PyQt it is
good to check documentation of the underlying Qt framework at:

Qt API reference: http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-4.8/classes.html

Some of the articles in the Qt documentation listed below provide a
good overview of the Qt architecture helping one to understand and use the
Qt framework better:

Signals and Slots:

Model View Programming:

Though the examples and sample code in Qt documentation is in C++,
following them shouldn't be a problem.  Some basic knowledge of C++
syntax would be good enough for you to understand the examples and the
concepts they explain.
