...feed goldfish lots of vegetables-semiboiled palak,boiled peas,can even add spirulina tabs in the diet.Feed carnivorous foods with care...not too much.For better coloration expose the goldfish to sunlight regularly(if possible).Rapid growth is best achieved with good feeding AND regular water changes(more the merrier,as long as the new water is consistent with the tank water)
its difficult to get good varieties of goldfish...dont know about mumbai,but southern india aquarists does have imported goldfish time to time...pls enquire.I have picked pretty good orandas,ryukins,ranchus and pandas from S.I aquarists....good luck!
P.S.the above mentioned products from tetra are excellent!works well.But expensive

As told veggie stuffs are recommended as goldies are basically barbs. A hi protien food like blood worms can be used to improve heads in orandas or others. A food rich in beta carotene can bring out the red pigment. To my knowledge spirulina is used & recommended by many gold-fish hobbyists. Some of my friends sprinkle raw spirulina and allow natural spirulina to grow on the side glasses of the tank. Then they scrap it off and feed their gold fish.
