The source would depend on what kind of data you want.

But perhaps for testing you don't care. AWS (Amazon Web Services) has a number of data sets available for free.

And you can easily find other sources with a browser search.

Hey Pranjal Agnihotri agree with Steven that there are lots of data sets you can find. There is a huge public database called Enigma that has a lot of data sets, also most governments around the world compile statistics that are publicly accessible through the web. There are also NGOs that compile and share data, for example the UN, OECD, or Asian Development Bank.
