In implementing the REST service when I run the URL then I get the following error..
"[Fiddler] ReadResponse() failed: The server did not return a response for this request."I want to return the response in JSON format ?However when I check for returning the response in XML format then its working absolutely perfect...What could be the possible cause of this when I return JSON response?
This is my XML response:

<Action i:nil="true"/>
<VerificationPassword i:nil="true"/>
<Address i:nil="true"/>
<Phone i:nil="true"/>
<ProviderCompanyLookup i:nil="true"/>

In the above response <lastupdateddatetime> is default i.e returning null.I have gone through Google that one of the problem can be a DateTime issue.So have to set it to a bigger value..But couldn't understand where to set and how to set ?

If this is not my problem then what could be the problem?

Any help is appreciated....

Based on my answer to your previous question, I take you are developing WCF REST service. Have you defined properties of WebInvoke attribute as below. Change Method type to POST if you are using POST method.
Method = "GET",
RequestFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json,
ResponseFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json,
UriTemplate = "/SampleUrl")]

You may refer my below Tip/Trick on the topic of "Debug WCF REST Service" using Fiddler. (Not an advertisement :))
Debug WCF REST Service.

Above Tip is based on XML data, just use Content-Type: application/json in "Request Headers" Tab of Fiddler.
