As suggested a 1200gsm paper should do the job. And dont worry chetu, these days the paints we get are of so high quality, you wont know the difference.

Once again, do not do this yourself. Go to a known workshop, not necessarily authorised by the manufacturer. But trusted by you, nevertheless.

I too had this problem in my Swift (Black). Got rid off it by wax polish. Also you can go through the below threads to get an idea

Default After Shave

If there are no ladies around (or are possesive about their nail polish remover!), the after shave can be used. It works pretty well to remove the very fine cement dust that settles on cars if they are anywhere close to construction sites. This is easily available and does not create a mess, and on top of it, you come out smelling better rather than worse.

You guys gotta be kidding!

DO NOT use aftershave / acetone / nail polish remover under any circumstances.

U can get the stains off by having it rubbed with a good rubbing compound. It wont cost you more than 100 rs. But because its white cement stain, You better take it to a good place where you get your car painted. Guys there could help you out.

chetu!
the only safe way is 'cutting' like elf has already suggested.followed by rubbing,polishing and buffing.
get this done by a professional.
also try 3M's 'finesse it!' its a microfinesse finishing compound.use it on a small spot and watch those spots vanish.
tell us when you have your car gleaming again!

Thanks doctorkats, I do enquired at one of the Maruti authorised service center. He said the same as you mentiond with 3M rubbing and polishing the job can be done. looks like he's going to remove the stains from thinner first later he applies 3M rubbing and polishing. is this the right method to do or not?

For God's sake, read the posts above man! DO NOT apply thinner to your paint under any circumstances.

goto 3M and fix it, if its paint it will come off.

and avoid experimenting yourself with thinner and all coz they can be bigger head aches.
