Please suggest.

depends on budget/ willingness to spend, aesthetics, personal choice.

distemper type are usually cheaper, are water bound and need to be redone in 4-5 years (depends on upkeep, usage).

oil-bound distempers too might be there.

Emulsion type paints give a bit better lustre and durability is more.

Have had oil-bound light colours on walls (but not kitchen per se) where we could even ‘wash’ them with mild soap or sometimes liquid gel /soap used forr utensils and the colours did not fade as much.

Recently, someone opted for wallpaper and it too cost them about 15-16Rs per square foot for the wallpaper ➕ 200 per kg for the gum powder that needs to be made into a solution with water ➕ about 500-600 per person labour per day.. in a Tier 1/2 city close to other big cities.
The wall paper is of middle range, so it would (in my view) be okay okay, compared to dual coat oil bound paint.

Advantage with wall paper is that it is much less time consuming and less messy than to go into preping the walls with putty, sanding, primer, first coat, second coat and then cleaning up afterwards.
Wallpaper application done right should ideally not trigger allegies, nor have odour.

for solving issue of overhead ceiling leakage which wall putty will be good

need a permanent solution

cannot even say if that by itself is at all a solution.
If there is terrace, open to nature above or another floor/residence… one has to first establish the source.

in older constructions (and we personally faced this issue) there was no apparent source , but the rebars (reinforcing bars/ ‘sariya’) started showing up at places (ceiling).
Had to get three different agencies involved (structural engineer/ civil works , contractor and then those waterproofing or others).
Thankfully in that property, simple removal of old plaster an use of waterproofing compound with new plaster was enough (leak or xeiling cave in was hardly two squarefeet but about 5-6 Sq Feet got redone)

In another property, load bearing walls on the exterior constantly had moldy moisture and seepage issue for 4 years despite hotchpotch waterproofing.
.
Then finally someone opened the exterior face of the plaster or may be it was hard scrubbing.
Realised that the wall was not propwrly joined to the beam part.
That minor issie at the time of construction left a pathway for water to find its way in.
Had it done properly on the outside and inside.
Where needed, instead of cement plaster.. that chemical mix was used as is used behind bathroom wall tiles.

Therafter Damp block https://www.asianpaints.com/products/waterproof...
and
Damp proof https://www.asianpaints.com/products/waterproof... were used.

P.S.: not advertising Asian Paints, i do not even remember which of the two is for external surfaces and which was used in bedrooms.
.
@desiman Merely applying putty or ANY OTHER COSMETIC cover-up will make the moisture/ water find another way out.
