This is Ajay currently in OPT valid till Aug 2022. My company is pursuing for H1B in the year 2020. I would like to know if I will be able to travel to India when my H1B gets processed (Apr 20 - Oct 20),

You can travel before it is approved. If the case has been approved when you are outside the country then your change of status from F-1 to H-1 will be abandoned but your H-1 will be approved in consular processing. So you will need to go out of the country 10 days before your H-1 start date and come back with stamping.
