Since this is an American based program, I had to look up Kadaknath Chicken. Looks very interesting. I also see it is a relatively large chicken - much larger than a broiler type chicken. Since people often raise broilers to different weights so space allotment is typically based on weight. I think that may not work for you. You should probably go by the spacing for dual-purpose type chickens.
Internal space allotment: After having said that, I would suggest 1/2 square foot per chick for the first two weeks and then 1 square foot to about 8 weeks. 2 square feet per chicken thereafter. So you will need 500 square feet for 1000 chicks in the initial brooding and then 2000 square feet by the end.
Free-range space will depend on the conditions of the outdoor area. If we want them to get any nutrition from the outside you need relatively good pasture. I would recommend at least 3 square feet per chicken outside.
