    Body weight depends on many factors including height, heredity, health problems, activity, race ,etc etc.
    I would suggest a few points in this regard for your case.

    1. Please take a medical check up and ensure that you do not have any health issues. Also ask your doctor whether your height-age-weight relationship is normal. If he says it is normal, then you need not worry.

    2. Ascertain from him how much weight you can gain ideally without causing problems.

    3. Plan your food intake based on your present intake and work on calorie bas plan. Ascertain what is the minimum BMR(Body Metabolism Rate) you need. You should consume food which supply more calories that the BMR.

    4. Make your meals well balanced with all needed nutrients and variety food. You may happily indulge in milk, dairy products and take proteins foods along with the usual carbohydrate foods you consume . You may slowly and gradually increase the intake. Increase of 7720 calories approximately may end up increasing in one kg of body weight (provide the activity level is same).

    5. Please do not increase food quantum suddenly or overeat with overenthusiasm. Keep the normal physical activity also to keep yourself fit.

    6 Include the normal home remedies of ginger, ajwain, jeera , hing etc in the food items to avoid indigestion and stomach problems.

    7. Keep only realistic targets. Divide your target into different stages with definite time period like fortnight, month etc.. The first stage will b easy. Achieve that. Then review and compare your goal for that period and make suitable adjustments either in goal or intake.

    8. Do not check weight every day. Check only after the first goal stage.

    9. Discontinue and re adjust quantum and style if any kind of discomfort is felt.

    10. Keep a good social life also to keep you happy always.

    Once you start gaining weight go to a gym and take up the optimum workouts to keep you fit. There also do not over exert.

    Gaining weight is lot easier than losing the weight. Here are some of the methods that you can try to gain some weight.

    1. Eat banana chips everyday. And make sure you also eat banana with milk.
    2. Make sure you get more sleep than required. This affects your metabolism.
    3. Move less and stay idle on the bed or the couch. That also contributes to metabolism slowing down.
    4. Go to gym and lift some weight. This increases your muscle and also helps gain some weight.

    Make sure you eat healthy. Though you may have to eat some junk food too as you are trying to gain weight. But once increased you may have to eat only healthy food. Otherwise this may affect your body. And this can turn into more of unhealthy weight. So you'd be forced to reduce the calories.

    Known person to me has increased weight from 52kg to 68kg in two months but his intake was high which was daily non vegetarian diet with high quantity. This can cause lot of pain to digest if you don't exercise and drink lot of water. It is not impossible to gain weight but to lose is highly impossible. So have exercise , eat healthy and high quantity daily and drink more water.
    There are lot of online plans available to follow daily routine to increase weight.
