Hi Vikrant,

As you read in the link from Cisco website (Cisco IOS Auto-Upgrade Manager):
The Cisco IOS Auto-Upgrade Manager simplifies the software
image upgrade process by providing a simple interface to specify,
download, and upgrade a new Cisco IOS image.

In 12.4(15)T, this feature was introduced on the Cisco 1800, Cisco
2800, and Cisco 3800 series routers.

This is a very good document regarding the IOS Auto-Upgrade: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/fundamentals/configuration/guide/cf_autoupgrade.pdf

HTH :)
