Is that any similar command in MSSQL like Oracle SET EXACT ON/OFF so that case-sensitive query can be performed in case-insensitive database instance.

You can only convert to varbinary to use case sensitivity
Be sure to do the same where clause without the varbinary conversion to use indexes before finding actual values.
where Name = 'John'
and convert(vabinary(20),Name) = convert(vabinary(20),'John')
