What exactly are you feeding your pup, Have you dewormed him. Plus if meat is not cooked well it can lead to many health issues. Manufactured dog food are good, like Royal Canin and Eukanoba along with Calcuim and multi vitamin suppliment. Once it starts getting colder you can give him egg too if you want.

What makes you think he is thin can you see his ribs sticking out.

In morning i gave him milk with calcium tonic mixed with vimeral in it and chhappatis. In afternoon gave him rice and pedigree puppy and Liv. 52. In evening again the same with calcium tonic. In night again milk and chhappatis. Beside this I have started giving him 2 eggs daily in evening and non veg. twice in a week. But still his health is not satisfactory. Please help me what should i do...

Eggs are important for his coat. Consult a vet, get him dewormed, if his digestion is ready for it switch to a natural meat diet(boiled) continue with the egg and chapati breakfast, he needs eggs for his coat.
Perhaps he could take some boiled mutton/chicken liver with rice 2-3 times a day, its usually fine for dogs his age.
Perhaps the pedigree thingy can be discontinued, read behind it, is it meat based... or does it have some fillers like corn etc. That would explain something ;)

Take a look at this https://www.royalcanin.co.uk/p df/german_shepherd_junior.pdf

Pedigree is not a good dog food as per my experience. Milk and roti is not wholesome nor nutritious.

I think it is better to give soup cooked with vegetable and or meat with rotis rather than the above. Manufactured food like advised earlier is the best. Dogs are also like children you keep to feed them right for them to develop properly.

Consult the vet to know what vegetables can be fed to the gsd, some vegies are known to cause gastic problems to dogs. too much milk is not good either.

I honestly didn't read all of the above but this is what I have to say. You are giving too much calcium. Calcium takes 12 hours to absorb to the body so twice a is good enough.

Calcium is a mineral. In excess these mineral bind with the protein and carbs and is passed undigested. i guess the stool colour is grey, dark grey or yellow despite the texture.

Do not give egg whites, they break up the vitamin in the body.

Some GSD are prone for EPI (liver failures to pass digestive enzymes). The solution is to give enzymes in forms of tablets or raw goat/ beef liver before each meal. Needs to be fresh as enzymes die as it ages or once cooked. The food also needs to be over cooked and stired while been cooked, this breaks the rice making digestion easier.

First see poo colour and get the poo checked if protein is been passed then decide on the action plan,
