It is impossible to know for sure as growth and the formation of "rings" can vary tremendously depending upon the type of care and how it was housed. From what I see, it does look like a 6 year old tortoise.

I found him in outskirts stay house where he was little injured in shell as you can see in some pictures. He is wild tortoise. It's been a week i had him in my house. He stays excited all the time, sleeps relaxed but i want to know what to de with this shell ? No doc is available here for exotics and reptiles.

Give it its natural habitat. Ensure that he gets plenty of sun and has some private hiding space. That'd be the first step to ensure it has a healthy environment.

Another issue is to keep them in house in not legal here. So if i go and explain they will charge me penalties and all. So I'm little scared to take him there. What to do ? Me and my family is taking good care of him, he even started to get along with us like running to me when he sees me ,getting excited...etc

Our local veterinarian only treats farm animals but he took excellent care of my tortoise. She is still with me after 24 years. A good veterinarian is willing to learn, seek the correct information and help.

I don't think you would have any problems if you explained that you found the tortoise hurt and want to help. You may wish to check with an animal protection society or a nature reserve in your area.
I do believe your tortoise is a protected animal. Good luck.
