You would have to use DSACLS or some other permission tool.  I've used it for years for this type of work.  I don't think there were any delegations I couldn't script with DSACLS

You may also want to look at "Property Sets".  It's just good to know how to use property sets to reduce the ACLs.  It's like NTFS permissions, you want to keep AD permissions as static as possible and use inheritance where possible.  This is also one of the biggest considerations as part as any AD OU structure design.

Also think about the data itself.  You have to be aware that if you give users this access, you have to prepare for bad information in these fields.  Users will typo just about anything.

i know the property set named General information ,Public information and personal information which are required by this user.As this is service account which is used to get this information from active directory domain for all the users and provide to the specefic  application.

I wasn't suggesting using one or more of the property sets since you know exactly what you want to change.  Then my previous comment was for the next person that finds your answer.

DSACLS will be pretty straight forward once you get the proper syntax.  There are probably other ways to do this, but I've only ever done it this way.  PowerShell can apparently do this as well.

Here of a bunch of sample commands that will grant permissions to  Level2 AD groups.  These all worked from a Windows 2003 server to a 2003 domain controller:

RPWP is the Read/Write permission for a single AD object attribute.  This also enables inheritance on the child objects
