While consuming 'xWebAdministration' module getting below error this module was imported to 'C:\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\Modules' folder.

[b]The PowerShell DSC resource xWebAdministration does not exist at the PowerShell module path nor is it registered as a WMI DSC resource.
CategoryInfo :InvalidOperation: [root/Microsoft/...gurationManager:String] [], CimException
FullyQualifiedErrorId :DscResourceNotFound[/b]

But there is no issue while importing to 'C:\windows\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\Modules'.

Not sure why its throwing error while consuming this module which was imported to 'C:\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\Modules\'. Please help us to understand it and do let us know recommended approach for importing module.

What's in your configuration script at the moment? xWebAdministration isn't a DSC resource, it's the module that contains the resources, which makes that error seem a bit weird.

Also, are you using an MSDN copy of Windows Server for this? If so, make sure KB2883200 is installed.
