I do not know much about  netapp and have a general question on virtual interface.
We create vif with three interface
ifgrp create multi  vif -b ip e0a e0b e0c
then
vlan create vif 10 50
When we create multiple vlans on that vif
How this inteface behaves , is it trunking the vlans? is it layer three interface etc  if not what do we need separate vlan?

This would be a layer one interface. It uses 3 interfaces adn will allow you use the 2 vlans. Don't forget to add aliases to the interface for what IP you want the iterface to show as a target  Now let's say you have switches that don't allow for creating a port channel across switches than I would do something like this

to make a two level interface would be something like

ifgrp create lacp vif1 -b ip e0a e0b
ifgrp create lacp vif2 -b ip e0c e0d

ifgrp create single vif3 vif1 vif2

vlan create vif3 10 50

ifgrp favor vif1
#this will use vif1 but will failover to vif2 if there is no connection on vif1

Thank you all.
I have only theree intefaces left (FAS20240) so I will not be able to got for two intwrfaces.

IF it is layer 1 interface then the multiple vlan is not going benefit anything if I create vlan like the way I want, am I correct?
I am thinking of give each vlan for each protocol etc.
Is it still good idea to go for multiple vlan with my design?

Let me clarify, the lacp interface is a layer is layer 3 (lacp or static trunk).  Netapp has multi layer interfaces which allow you combine interface groups for redundancy and failover.  

your way works fine.  What are you using for the single interface you already have?  Don't forget to configure the Storage Processor interface (sp)
