I have installed Splunk universal forwarder on my local system where the enterprise instance is installed. After installing the forwarder I have done the required configurations as well but now I can see any data received from the forwarder. When I check the splunkd.log file I can see some messages like "TcpOutputProc - Tcpout Processor: The TCP output processor has paused the data flow. Forwarding to output group default-autolb-group has been blocked for 1430 seconds. This will probably stall the data flow towards indexing and other network outputs. Review the receiving system's health in the Splunk Monitoring Console. It is probably not accepting data."

Did you install universal forwarder on the local system where also Splunk Enterprise (Splunk indexer) is installed?!?! On the same single system?!?!
Yes both of them are installed on the same system.
Did you enable Splunk to listen on port
If so, you can start with this link
I have enabled splunk to listen on 9997 port.
My input.conf looks like below:
host = DUTTAAN2
disabled = 0
stopAcceptorAfterQBlock = 1200
The output.conf like:
defaultGroup = default-autolb-group
indexAndForward = 0
disabled = 0
server = localhost:9997
