Hi,
I have an Airtel VSDL connection (40mbps ULD for 999) but I want Airtel XStream connection (because of the good upload speed)

I saw pamphlets in my area for XStream Fibre and the guys are saying that FTTH is available in my area but Airtel guys are denying saying that your area is not feasible.

They are giving new connections but not upgrading their existing users to the Fibre network.

Same here, I have seen hand-outs stuck to lamp posts but when I applied for an upgrade they declined due to 'feasibility' reasons. I think they are doing this on purpose until they achieve a min # of subscribers before offering connections. Frankly I'd drop YBB if Airtel gave me a fiber connection. But given the way they move it's going to take time.

Maybe try applying for a new connection? And see whether they'd give it? If you get it you can always drop the old connection. 🤪

Why won't they give you a new connection if they are giving connections in your locality 🤷‍♂️

Maybe they haven't laid fiber to your building.
This happened with me when siti was providing their internet to a building just opposite of mine but not to mine because some guy cut it and they wouldn't lay new one just for me.
If they do fiber provide in your building then apply for a new connection with different name.
