Hello Prakavi,

your chassis and supervisor support WS-6716. I have seen this linecard installed with Sup720 3B or better

Also the IOS image is enough to support it  (good support should start from 12.2(33)SXH and you have a later 12.2(33)SXI)

see

Hope to help

Giuseppe has answered this already. Your IOS is 12.2(33)SXI. SXI versions are later then SXH versions so you should be fine.
