Not sure what your question is.  The answer you're getting indicates that "sify.com.co.in" is an alias (CNAME or canonical name) for "com.co.in".  The IP address for "com.co.in" is 67.18.199.2.  The odd thing is that 67.18.199.2 is also the IP address of the DNS server named ns39.hostgator.com.  Unless the site you're trying to locate is actually running on that server, the DNS record for that site is incorrectly configured.

My question is when i am doing nslookup for any web site it is giving the same response and resolve with same ip address 67.18.199.2.
For example nslookup hotmail.com - it is not giving me the correct ip address for hotmail, instead i am getting 67.18.199.2.

Well, I am not getting that result, but what I am getting is a "Bad Error Value" response on anything I try to resolve from either of those two servers.  If you are using those servers (ns39.hostgator.com and ns40.hostgator.com) as your DNS resolvers or forwarders, then you need to find some other servers to use.  Obviously, they are configured in some way as to prevent response to external queries.  I read something about this having to do with zone transfers, but of course I assume that's not what you're trying to do.

What address do you have in your DNS forwarders? Make sure you have your ISP's DNS servers listed. Can you ping  the websites?

Yes i am able to ping www.yahoo.com , but it is giving me diffrent IP 87.248.113.14 but when i do nslookup it gives me always 67.18.199.2 . my simple question why it is resolving some other ip which is not the yahoo server ip, and i am able to ping 67.18.199.2. what is this ip means?
Ex:
C:\>ping www.yahoo.com
Pinging www.yahoo-ht3.akadns.net [87.248.113.14] with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from 87.248.113.14: bytes=32 time=176ms TTL=52
Reply from 87.248.113.14: bytes=32 time=174ms TTL=52

Ping statistics for 87.248.113.14:
    Packets: Sent = 2, Received = 2, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = 174ms, Maximum = 176ms, Average = 175ms
^C
C:\>nslookup www.yahoo.com
Server:  MBMUMBXXXXD001DNS001
Address:  220.225.236.84

I also get this IP address when looking up this www.yahoo.com.co.in. Do you know this site http://www.com.co.in/home.html which seems to be the holder of the Aliase for www.yahoo.com.co.in.

Look through your DNS console to see if you have an A record listed for this.
