You can follow below link to understand about both the breeds and then decide which one would be appropriate for you and your family.

Getting home a dog is a huge responsibility and you need to be absolutely sure if you can invest proper time in his training, health care, exercise etc. Read up thoroughly about how to take care of them. Both of these breeds make great family pets. However, since you are a first timer and want to select only from the mentioned breeds, I would suggest you to go for Labrador. Rottweiler's can have aggression issues if not trained properly so not advisable for beginners. Having said that, any dog's temperament is a reflection of the environment he's kept in and the way he's treated.

Actually I live in a rural area and vet's clinic is approx. 20km and in your site I had read that it requires frequent visit to vet. I have done a bit research on Labrador and many of them said that its quite unstable and very friendly with strangers too.I mean if thief comes to my home it will welcome him.So I was thinking of Rottweiler. Anyways thanks for the info and can you suggest any breed which if friendly as Labs and good guard dogs as Rottweiler.

No dog is born guard dog, however all dogs are alarm dog.
So a Rottie might look fierce & his bark may scare trespasser, it won't stand annywhere against a thief with a knife.

But if you are buying Rottweiler anyway, atleast invest some time reading about raising dogs. And neuter your dog at 6 months of age if you're going to make your dog live in the backyard. Neutering will make a male dog not roam in search of females.

When you bring a new puppy home; the most important thing is to get him vaccinated. You can either take him to a veterinarian or give him the required shots easily at home. Vaccinations make the immune system detect and respond to various infections and diseases, before they can cause any form of serious harm to the body.

You said Vet Care is not easily available, however I would suggest you to complet a pup's core vaccine as without it your pup can even die. And I am not saying this to scare you as dead from parvo is a huge concern for dog lovers.
After you get the pup from the breeder, go straight to a Vet & ask him to make a chart of vaccines your pup should get & ask him to teach you how to give vaccines. Once you have the note of the vaccines your pup should get & the time of vaccines @you can buy from a pharmacy & give the vaccines yourself at home.

Indian dogs are excellent security dogs and because of the hard natural selection at their birth, they do better than most of the puppy mills breeds. We have a few Desi dogs in our place and one lab, the lab is rather timid while the Desi are quickly reacting to any new visitor or intruder. Just a thought.

Sonia has got a point here. Indian Pariah dogs are very territorial and that's why they are excellent alarm dog.
But if you are not interested in "strays" then there are also other Indian origin dog breeds like Combai, Bully Kutta, Rajapalayam, Chippiparai, etc.

Is it necessary to get my dog neutered because a friend a mine owns a dog, he didn't neuter it and is it necessary to feed him non.veg ?

Is neutering necessary? Yes if you have an outside dog and you don't him to roam around your neighborhood impregnenting all bitches. When my dog is an alarm dog I want him to concentrate on his job.

But Neutering dogs that lives inside with their owner is not mandatory.
And as far veg diet goes, I have first hand experience that doesn't matter it's veg or nonveg, home cooked food is always incomplete. Home made food always lack a nutrition or another.

I would suggest you feed packaged food if you don't want to handle meat. Don't feed Pedigree though, it is a very unhealthy brand. Drools Focus is fine, and so is Venky's Regale. Even if you can't afford to feed twice a day, feed packaged food at least once a day, at dinner time. For day meal, home cooked veg can be okay, as long as you are knowledgeable about what you're feeding. And by knowledgeable I mean knowing that onions and garlic are bad for dogs. And so is milk. Some little things as such.
