use DrawMode = TabDrawMode.OwnerDrawFixed;

and using DrawItem you can paint in whatever way you want

refer to following sample code for more details.
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;

namespace WindowsFormsApplication2
{
    public partial class TestForm : Form
    {
        private TabControl tabControl1;
        private TabPage tabPage1;
        private RadioButton rbq1_d;
        private RadioButton rbq1_c;
        private RadioButton rbq1_b;
        private RadioButton rbq1_a;
        private Label label1;
        private TabPage tabPage2;
        private Color TabControlBackColor;
        private DataGridView dataGridView1;
        private DataGridViewTextBoxColumn serialnumber;
        private DataGridViewTextBoxColumn Value;
        private SolidBrush TabControlBrush = null;

    
        public TestForm()
        {
            

            InitializeComponent();
            tabControl1.DrawMode = TabDrawMode.OwnerDrawFixed;

            TabControlBackColor = Color.Blue;
            TabControlBrush = new SolidBrush(TabControlBackColor);

            foreach (TabPage page in tabControl1.TabPages)
            {

hi @naman_goel:

my coding is below but i can't paint that red mark line which has been seen in attached snapshot....

private void tbQuestionBank_DrawItem(object sender, DrawItemEventArgs e)
        {
            TabPage currenttab = tbQuestionBank.TabPages[e.Index];
            tbQuestionBank.DrawMode = TabDrawMode.OwnerDrawFixed;
            Rectangle ItemRect = tbQuestionBank.GetTabRect(e.Index);
            SolidBrush FillBrush = new SolidBrush(Color.FromKnownColor(KnownColor.InactiveCaptionText));
            SolidBrush TextBrush = new SolidBrush(Color.Black);
            StringFormat sf = new StringFormat();
            sf.Alignment = StringAlignment.Center;
            sf.LineAlignment = StringAlignment.Center;

            //if we are currently painted the selected tab item then we can change the brush color
            if(System.Convert.ToBoolean(e.State & DrawItemState.Selected))
            {
                FillBrush.Color = Color.FromKnownColor(KnownColor.InactiveCaptionText);
                TextBrush.Color = Color.Black;
                ItemRect.Inflate(2,2);
            }
            //Set up rotation for left and right aligned tabs
            if (tbQuestionBank.Alignment == TabAlignment.Left || tbQuestionBank.Alignment == TabAlignment.Right)
            {
                float RotateAngle = 90;
                if (tbQuestionBank.Alignment == TabAlignment.Left)
                    RotateAngle = 270;
                PointF cp = new PointF(ItemRect.Left + (ItemRect.Width / 2), ItemRect.Top + (ItemRect.Height / 2));
                e.Graphics.TranslateTransform(cp.X, cp.Y);
                e.Graphics.RotateTransform(RotateAngle);
                ItemRect = new Rectangle(-(ItemRect.Height / 2), -(ItemRect.Width / 2), ItemRect.Height, ItemRect.Width);
            }

            //Next we'll paint the TabItem with our Fill Brush
            e.Graphics.FillRectangle(FillBrush, ItemRect);

            //Now draw the text.
            e.Graphics.DrawString(currenttab.Text, e.Font, TextBrush, (RectangleF)ItemRect, sf);

            //Reset any Graphics rotation
            e.Graphics.ResetTransform();

            //Finally, we should Dispose of our brushes.
            FillBrush.Dispose();
            TextBrush.Dispose();
        }
