I have Tech-com UPS 600kvanow the battery does not hold for even 1 second with or without load.Hence its useless to have that UPS.the new UPS costs around Rs. 1300.What is the cost of new battery?Can that device battery be replaced? Or I just dump it?

a new original battery will not cost less than 600 ( after giving old battery).. The original OEM battery bundled with a new UPS generally last longer..better to go for a new one..and just FYI.. a Numeric 600VA would cost 1600 and would be better quality/support than the tech-com..

is it safe to buy battery and change it on my own?bcz the label on ups says caution... no user servicable parts inside. Only qualifies techies can open it...

though it differs from model to model , its generally not that difficult. just get the Techcom guys to replace it. or your local electrician..
