1. What is the purpose of the computer? What all applications and games are you going to run? (Stupid answers like 'gaming' or 'office work' will not work. Be exact. Which games? Which applications? Avoid the word 'et cetera.')
Ans:
Gaming mainly. Almost all latest games like GTA V, AC Unity/Rogue, Shadows of Mordor, Witcher 3 and all upcoming games for the next 4-5 years at 60 fps either High or Ultra or atleast Mid settings(later on) on 1080p.

2. What is your overall budget? If you can extend a bit for a more balanced configuration, then mention this too.
Ans:
75-80,000

3. Planning to overclock?
Ans:
Towards the end to prolong. Otherwise not much.

4. Which Operating System are you planning to use?
Ans:
Windows 7 and 10

5. How much hard drive space is needed?
Ans:
1 TB min. SSD of 250gb

6. Do you want to buy a monitor? If yes, please mention which screen size and resolution do you want. If you already have a monitor and want to reuse it, again mention the size and resolution of monitor you have.
Ans:
24 inch 1080p. I already have one in mine.LG 24MP77HM is a beauty( Please build it around this)

7. Which components you DON'T want to buy or which components you already have and plan on reusing?
Ans:
I will be building from scratch .

8. When are you planning to buy the system?
Ans:
Within July-Aug 2016

9. Have you ever built a desktop before or will this be done by an assembler?
Ans:
No.Done by Assembler.But have some idea about hardware.

10. Where do you live? Are you buying locally? Are you open to buying stuff from online shops if you don't get locally?
Ans:
Kolkata. I am open to buying both locally or online wherever it is cheaper.

11. Anything else which you would like to say?
Ans:
I want a system that will last me easily upto 5-6 yrs and I can play games atleast at mid setting 30fps (end of 4-5 yrs). I want the best VFM 6th gen Intel i5 Processor,min. 8GB DDR4 RAM, GTX 970 or better.Neither GPU or CPU should become a bottleneck for the next 4-5 years.

Right off the assembly line
In 2015 March, I built a PC for 80K, it's specs are as follows:
Intel i5-4690K (3.5GHz)
Msi GTX 970 Gaming 4G
Msi z97 gaming 3 motherboard
(I used my old 500GB HDD from 2011)
LG ODD
Corsair Vengeance 2X4GB 1600MHz DDR3
CM Hyper 212X Cooler
CM k380 Mid tower cabinet and Dell S2240L (21.5 inch) monitor.

Now these have served me well for more than a year and have lot more juice in them and will satisfy me for a couple more years.
Coming back to your queries:
1.Your config must be:
Intel i5 6600K
Msi or Asus pascal series (x70) GPU
Msi Z170 Krait gaming black motherboard or ASUS Z170 Pro gaming motherboard or ASUS Maximus VIII ranger.
Get a liquid CPU cooler like Antec Kuhler H20
Seagate Barracuda 1TB HDD (7200 RPM), If at all you have money enough to go for an SSD get Kingston SSDnow 120 GB
Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 16 GB (2 x 8GB)
LG or ASUS optical disk drive
Cabinet: CM HAF 912 or NZXT phantom 530
Corsair VS 650W power supply unit
For a mouse and keyboard combo you can go for CM storm Devastator

Your PC wont be able to run smooth 60 FPS 4K on upcoming titles but it can really do well in 2K though.

2. That indeed is a good budget. But you might want to go upto 90K.
3. Overclocking my friend isn't as easy as it sounds trust me. I've done it with my GTX 970 and it was really difficult. But then I reset everything back to normal mode and now I surprisingly get 60 FPS maxed out Witcher 3 in 1080P. Getting a factory overclocked GPU is best.
4. Win 10 is best for gaming.
5. Seagate Barracuda 1TB does the job. I wouldn't recommend an SSD. It increases cost unnecessarily, can spend it on something else.
6. You have an excellent monitor. Even if you wanted to play games in 2K or 4K you can use DSR. Keep the monitor.
8. By this time mostly the Pascal series will be available and also Polaris by AMD. Get a 970 successor in Pascal, it has best bang for buck.
9. It is always better to let the shop people assemble your PC. The reason being that if there is any fault in hardware they'll replace it immediately. Example, my cabinet's front panel , during assembly, was broken inside somewhere and refused to close in, they replaced it then and there.
11. An 8GB to 16GB DDR4 RAM will last you very long.

All the best Gaming!
