Swedish learning

I am a native Hindi speaker with English as the second language. I am learning German and wish to learn Swedish too. Is Swedish easier than German? I also want to know if learning Swedish will help me in getting admission in Swedish universities.

Swedish is easier, as it doesn't have the case system that German has.

For studies in Swedish, you will have to pass a TISUS test (Test i svenska för universitets- och högskolestudier, Test in Swedish for University Studies). Some Swedish universities will offer courses in English as well, but you will have to contact the university you want to go to about the specific courses you're interested in and ask whether proving your English skills will be enough in that case. Either way, learning the language will be a great benefit if you want to live there. :)

I'm only at levels 4 and 3 in German and Swedish, respectively, so keep that in mind. So far I'd say Swedish is easier of the two. But I like both so I will continue both. As far as getting into a university, learning any amount of the native country's language could only help. So if getting into a Swedish university is a goal, learning Swedish would seem to be a very very good idea!

You can use https://studyinsweden.se/ to find universities, filter by programme, then to visit the university's website where you can see the exact programs offered in English. As Deliciae says, you'll still need to prove your English competency.
