you can do it via GridView setting... like adding:

<EmptyDataTemplate>No Record Available</EmptyDataTemplate>

Hi Sukesh Shukla, GridView has EmptyDataText property. If there is no records found it will display "No data is present"

<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" EmptyDataText="No data is present"></asp:GridView>

For more details please check the attachment.
