Since we are downloading around 400mb of data in form of "apk files" the internet bandwidth has become constraint for us.

To solve this we need to install the apks using usb drive. Is there a way to install app locally on the device?

Yes, it is possible.

Specify the APK URL as file:///storage/emulated/0/your-app.apk (/storage/emulated/0 is the SD card path).

how to installed from external
USB Storage
You need to know its path in Android OS. AFAIK, external storages are mounted in the /mnt directory. Open adb shell and run the "ls /mnt" command, it should show the path.
