Yes, you should be able to see the June Lyrids in Uttar Pradesh (assuming thats what you mean by U.P). You should be able to see the Lyrids from 8 p.m. onwards in a north easterly direction. The shower is visible throughout the night, its radiant point moving north and then west. I see it is a full moon there this year so you might have difficulty seeing it because of the light. In addition to the Lyrids are the T-Herculids, located slightly to the west. Hope you get "Lucky" :) Although the nearest star is Vega, the radiant point is not exactly close by.
