After a bit digging up I found the solution to add different oracle server in PBI.

To connect with oracle server we have to install oracle client i.e ODAC in which we have tnsnames file which basically stores the information about network service names in which using following systax we can add multiple servers oracle servers to PBI

service_name =
(DESCRIPTION_LIST=
(DESCRIPTION =
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = server1)(PORT = 1521))
(CONNECT_DATA =
(SERVICE_NAME = example1.com) )
)
(DESCRIPTION =
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = server2)(PORT = 1521))
(CONNECT_DATA =
(SERVICE_NAME = example2.com) )
)
)

@neetikulkarni , In import mode you can get data from more than one connection. As long as you are able to connect.
