The future of infantry. Imagine being able to zoom in through your visors which are wirelessly connected to optics and thermal imagers, having real time friend and foe identification like a video game, outlining routes and marks on the terrain in real time. So many possibilities.

Yes but you lose your perspective and peripheral vision which are crucial to your survival rates.

India is already doing something like this. Same for Microsoft - check out the Hololens for US Army

How much rounds does an infantry machine gunner carries on himself in Indian Army ??

For comparison US machine gunners usually carried around around 1000 rounds of links on them .

How much you need Soldiers carry around 4-5
The standard load out of the US Army and USMC is 7 mags but from what I hear, their soldiers would often carry more depending on the duration of their mission. 4-5 mags may be enough for an RR patrol party but in an active war against a conventional opponent, you'd need at least twice of that amount.
