Hello hariprasadere,

yes correct

it also requires you to update to .NET 2.0 framework

hope this helps a bit
Visual Studio 2005 allows you to create applications, etc... using the .NET 2.0 Framework.
There is also some interface changes as well. SQL 2005 management is also integrated into that environment by default, instead of requiring a seperate set of client tools like SQL 2000.

That is just a couple of the differences though. Multiple versions of 2005 exist as well (Express, Team Edition, etc...)

Spend some time at the above link.

Good luck!

there is some additional discussion about the value of upgrading here

"Is vs2005 update version of 2003"

It is not simply an updated version of VS2003.

It is a different, standalone, newer version.

VS2003 uses .Net 1.1.

VS2005 uses .Net 2.0

The two versions are independent of each other and CAN exist side by side on the same machine.
