I need to upload a site template in a subsite, and I need a clarification about whether site template covers the web parts also or not? I referred this link https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/jj938033.aspx but I need more clarification about the same?

I guess you have gone through the link and you know what the link is all about.

I am just trying to add some couple of points into it. If you save your site as template with including content then it will also contains all the lists and custom WebParts.

But if your site is publishing site or you have activated the publishing site feature then you need to deactivate this feature first and then try the same.

It will back up all your Lists and WebParts

Please refer this answer and comment for more detail.
