I doubt that u get arduino module with blue-tooth shield. So its better to take new blue-tooth shield. else you can develop ur own board with mega2560 IC with bluetooth interface

Fat chance of that... Jonathon Oxer doesn't do it, and why should you need a local source for it anyway. As it is, unless you have some very special need that you are not letting on about, you are bound to need a swag of peripherals to go with the Mega resulting in the need for a shield, and the bluetooth could go on that without any problems.  An Australian-made shield even.

Maybe you can help us out a little more.
Do you need the Mega for the extra I/O or memory space? (or both!)
For example if you need the I/O you could use an BLUNO with some I/O expansion:

Yes I need the Mega for the flexible memory space. We have found this board that has rtc built in, ethernet and sd card reader but does not have usb interface. It still needs a Bluetooth shield for what we need.

That's a really interesting Mega board. I have never seen it before and it graphically shows the way things so often are with boards - it has everything except what you need......
