Using FontFactory.register() method. Like this:

FontFactory.register("C:\\Windows\\Font\\yourfont", "YourFontName");
FontFactory.getFont("YourFontName", BaseFont.CP1252, BaseFont.EMBEDDED);

I used your code as,

FontFactory.register("C:\\WINDOWS\\Fonts\\K021", "K021");
cell = new PdfPCell(new Phrase(" M/S. Askaran Vijay Foods", FontFactory.getFont("K021", BaseFont.CP1252, BaseFont.EMBEDDED)));

But its not working. Its showing some different English font but 'K021' is a Marathi font

I downloaded k021 font from here: http://www.eshabdakosh.com/download-font.html

I extracted the file to C:\WINDOWS\Fonts\

And this is the code that I tested and shows the fonts:

FontFactory.register("C:\\Windows\\Fonts\\k021.ttf", "k021");
Font tempFont = FontFactory.getFont("k021", BaseFont.CP1252, BaseFont.EMBEDDED);
// Lets see if the font is found:
System.out.println("tempFont = " + tempFont.getFamilyname());
// Now use it:
preface.add(new Paragraph("Title of the document XX", tempFont));
