I got exim-4.52-7_cpanel
I want to know if this MTA is spf ready?
Or need some tweaking to implement it ?
If it is the case , How this can be done?

Go on, have a guess
If you want to implement SPF yourself in exim, then I believe that there are instructions off of the SPF site for exim. That said, if you have hosting customers, be sure to warn them that they will lose legitimate email if you integrate it into exim. Also be aware that SPF does nothing at all about SPAM, it's purely about preventing joe-jobbing, nothing more:

You don't need to do anything with exim if you only want recipient SPF as that is all done in the DNS records for the respective domains.
