First you have to create category for your group like this:

<record model="ir.module.category" id="module_my_gourp_category">
        <field name="name">My Group Category</field>
        <field name="description">Group Description.</field>
        <field name="sequence">10</field>

Then give category reference in your group like this:

<record id="my_group" model="res.groups">
    <field name="name">My Group</field>
    <field name="category_id" ref="module_my_gourp_category"/>

This will create selection for group instead of check box.

Thanks Sudhir Arya, this is working fine for one group, how to add more than one group in selection list

It's simple. You just need to create more res.groups and give category reference in category_id.
