Issue is ..

And
In the Right Hand Side, I need a box to load ..
When we select more than one item on left hand side .. each and every new item should go to new box ...

Maximum i should be allowed to select 15 items...

Set your textbox's MultiLine property to True. Then do this:
 

        TextBox1.Text = ""
        For Each item As Object In ListBox1.SelectedItems
            TextBox1.Text &= item.ToString & vbNewLine
        Next

Open in new window

Oh, you want to limit 15 items in your textbox, do this:

    Private Sub ListBox1_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles ListBox1.SelectedIndexChanged
        TextBox1.Text = ""
        For Each item As Object In ListBox1.SelectedItems
            If TextBox1.Lines.Length = 15 Then
                Exit For
            End If
            TextBox1.Text &= item.ToString & vbNewLine
        Next
    End Sub

why don't you use a second ListBox..Then your Code would like this:
Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim item As Object
        Me.ListBox2.Items.Clear()
        item = ListBox1.SelectedItem()
        For Each item In Me.ListBox1.SelectedItems
            Me.ListBox2.Items.Add(item)
        Next
    End Sub

        TextBox1.Text = "You Selected:" & vbNewLine
        For Each item As Object In ListBox1.SelectedItems
            If TextBox1.Lines.Length = 15 Then
