just don't.  Don't import BGP into EIGRP.   If you need externals routes between internal routers, run iBGP.
Perhaps you could explain why you think you need to import BGP into EIGRP. What are you looking for that you don't have now? On the face of it, I agree 100% with Jan. If you're looking for a more dynamic solution than a static route (due to multiple paths or something), there are other ways.

I agree with you all. I just want to know the solution to for the router facing the BGP interface. The default route to outside and what else do I need to make clients reach the webserver.

Thanks, Habib

The solution is:

1a) if you have enough memory, take full routes, advertise no default
1b) if you have almost enough memory, take provider and provider customer routes and have your provider send you a default route
1c) if your memory is too low, take provider routes and have your provider send you a default route

2) use IS-IS or OSPF for internet routing.  

3) if you have a bgp neighbor from two or more routers, do a full ibgp mesh (in a small network), RRs or confederations in a large network, accept full routes, do not accept a default route
And if you only have one ISP connection as your drawing shows, just take the default route from your provider and nothing more. EIGRP will automatically advertise a default route into your network if the router has a default route from another protocol (static, BGP, etc.). there's no need to make it any more complicated than it has to be.

I understand BGP is used by ISPs. This is a diagram shared by Cisco and just needed to know how R1 was suppose to be configured. This is one thing I dont like when people start assuming the worst.

Anyway the right answer is just to create a default route on the edge router
