we have master local controller setup with 50 AP as well we have 3 remote locations with 10 IAP per location.
Airwave is used for monitoring purpose only.
Can some one please explain where i can use Groups and Folders for my wireless setup.

Groups are for configuration of devices that need to have the same configuration maintained.
Folders are for heirarchical reporting.
If you are not using Airwave for configuration, the group does not matter on the device, even though Airwave makes you set one..

Yes, you are right. Groups are configuration specific and Folders are mainly to identify the location.
So, since we would be managing the controller from Airwave we can have controllers with same config in one group and APs can be added to folders based on the location.

If you want to manage the devices from Airwave, create group in Airwave and make sure move the controllers with similar configuration in that group. In your case, if you have master-local controllre setup, place those two controllers in same group and import the master controller configuration on to Airwave, to make configuaration status Good for both master/local controller in Airwave.
All APs you can place in same Group but you can create folders so that based on location of you APs you can create a folder with proper name and move those devices to that folder so that it will useful to filter APs based on location in Airwave and also will running reports and setting trigger conditons.
