Both the queries return branch name and employees count. First query is returning data(2 columns Branch and No of Available employees) from HR database. Second query is returning from Training database (2 columns Branch and No of Registered Employees). What I am looking for is a query returning three columns; [Branch], [No of Available Employees], [No of Registered Employees] . Can i join them or union them in a way to get these columns
thanks

See how this works for you:
SELECT 	RE.Branch, RE.Reg_Emp As 'No of Registered Employees', AE.AV_Emp As 'No of Available Employees'
FROM 	(SELECT ve.Branch, count(ve.ID) As 'No of Available Employees ' 
		FROM  	[193.0.9.223].HumanResources.dbo.vwEmployee As ve
				LEFT JOIN 
				[193.0.9.223].HumanResources.dbo.vwBranch As vb 
				ON ve.branch = vb.Name
		WHERE 	ve.leavingdate IS NULL
		GROUP BY ve.branch) As AE
		LEFT JOIN
		(SELECT B.Branch, COUNT(E.EmployeeID) As Reg_Emp
		FROM 	dbo.tblEmployee As E
				LEFT JOIN dbo.tblBranch As B
				ON E.BranchID = B.BranchID
				LEFT JOIN [193.0.9.223].HumanResources.dbo.vwEmployee As VE
				ON E.EmployeeID = VE.ID
		WHERE VE.LeavingDate IS NULL
		GROUP BY E.Branch) As RE
		ON AE.Branch = RE.Branch

Thanks for above comment but i am still getting an error which i m trying to resolve for last two hours. The error i get is
Msg 446, Level 16, State 9, Line 1
Cannot resolve collation conflict for equal to operation.

SELECT 	RE.Branch, RE.Reg_Emp As 'No of Registered Employees', AE.AV_Emp As 'No of Available Employees'
FROM 	(SELECT ve.Branch, count(ve.ID) As AV_Emp
		FROM  	[193.0.9.223].HumanResources.dbo.vwEmployee As ve
LEFT JOIN 
				[193.0.9.223].HumanResources.dbo.vwBranch As vb 
				ON ve.branch = vb.Name
		WHERE 	ve.leavingdate IS NULL
		GROUP BY ve.branch) As AE 
		LEFT JOIN 
		(SELECT B.Branch, COUNT(E.EmployeeID) As Reg_Emp
		FROM 	tblEmployee As E
				LEFT JOIN tblBranch As B
				ON E.BranchID = B.BranchID
				LEFT JOIN [193.0.9.223].HumanResources.dbo.vwEmployee As VE

I dont know too much about dB collation, but I think this issue is because two of the tables you are trying to join have different collation properties.

You can try adding COLLATE DATABASE_DEFAULT after each table reference in a FROM clause, e.g:

Problem is that it may not be all the joins that are causing the issue, so having it in the wrong place will also throw an error I think.  Best to play about with it until it works, but this *should* be the answer.
SELECT  RE.Branch, RE.Reg_Emp As 'No of Registered Employees', AE.AV_Emp As 'No of Available Employees'
FROM    (SELECT ve.Branch, count(ve.ID) As AV_Emp
                FROM    [193.0.9.223].HumanResources.dbo.vwEmployee As ve
								LEFT JOIN 
                                [193.0.9.223].HumanResources.dbo.vwBranch As vb 
                                ON ve.branch COLLATE DATABASE_DEFAULT = vb.Name COLLATE DATABASE_DEFAULT
                WHERE   ve.leavingdate IS NULL
                GROUP BY ve.branch) As AE 
                LEFT JOIN 
                (SELECT B.Branch, COUNT(E.EmployeeID) As Reg_Emp
                FROM    tblEmployee As E
                                LEFT JOIN tblBranch As B
                                ON E.BranchID COLLATE DATABASE_DEFAULT = B.BranchID COLLATE DATABASE_DEFAULT
                                LEFT JOIN [193.0.9.223].HumanResources.dbo.vwEmployee As VE
                                ON E.EmployeeID COLLATE DATABASE_DEFAULT = VE.ID COLLATE DATABASE_DEFAULT
                WHERE VE.LeavingDate IS NULL
                GROUP BY B.Branch) As RE
                ON  AE.Branch COLLATE DATABASE_DEFAULT = RE.Branch COLLATE DATABASE_DEFAULT
