AFAIK, only the w8968 sports both a modem as well as WAN capability in order to use it as a standalone router, most modem router combos can't be used as standalone routers. Since you already have your FTTH modem (ont), you need a standalone router.

Thank you so much I think you are right and a router is all I need. If in future I shift to normal bb of Airtel or Bsnl , the one time modem charges is 500-700 ( not a lot ) right ?

No idea about charges from ISP. Market cost is around 900-1000.
