Minor point:

It would be preferred that the file names adhere to the system tabulated in
the USFM User Reference,
the  section on Identification | Book Abbreviations, where the table is

This table lists all the standard 3-character book abbreviations that can be
entered after \id marker at the top of each USFM file.
Some scripture editors like Paratext may also include the number shown for
each book in the filename for that book.

Thus: (for the books provided so far, filenames to begin with these numbers)

63	 1JN	1 John	The First Letter of John
64     2JN	2 John	The Second Letter of John
65	3JN	3 John	The Third Letter of John
66	JUD	Jude	        The Letter of Jude; ....

This is not an absolute requirement, but it helps for directory sorting to
have the numerical prefices.
It doubly helps Windows users to separate the two digit prefices with [say]
an underscore.

e.g. 63_1JN_MAL.usfm

The text for the \mt tags is currently in English. For these main titles, I
would expect Malayalam also.

NB. The three epistles of John have an empty \toc1 tag.

Apart from this - I detected no significant technical issues in the four
e.g. There are no missing verses or mistyped tags.

Best wishes,
