You can add row summaries to any columns you wish, and it will automatically recalculate the total for you.  The attached code is a very simple way of adding summation summaries to the two columns you're interested in.  There are plenty of ways to tweak the calculation, placement, and appearance...just consult the API.
private void ultraGrid1_InitializeLayout(object sender, Infragistics.Win.UltraWinGrid.InitializeLayoutEventArgs e)

How to assign the column total to the labels?

I will try this and let u know whether it is working or not.  How to consult the API.
I need lot more information about the  ultraWinGrid. Pls suggest me some good source.

You answered my ulraWinGrid CombinedDate column question, it's not working. I posted the comment.
Can u pls see my comment and help me.
The API should be installed when you install Infragistics.  Look for Infragistics in your Start menu, then open the ".NET Help Center".

Sorry for not being much help when it comes to code, but I've never used C# and it's difficult to come up with examples!  That being said, I think you're asking how to get the value of the column total and assign it to a label?  You can do that like so:
label1.Text = this.ultraGrid1.Rows.SummaryValues[0].SummaryText;

ZeonFlash,Thanks for your comment.
I tried  column summaries.It is not giving the column sum.
 It is showing errors in the InitializeLayout event.
Error: The name 'SummaryType' does not exist in the current context.
To fix that, you can either add to the top of the form:

using Infragistics.Win.UltraWinGrid;

OR qualify the SummaryType a little more by adding the Infragistics namespace in front of it like this:
