Are all your labels named Lbl1?

no its lbl2,lbl3..till 10 so what should i do so that i can set the text as per the datagrid view columns

And this my friend is programming, your going to have to come up with the logic in your loop.

This should be fairly simple if you just play with it for awhile and try some things.

And also lbl1 through lbl10 is a horrible naming convention, everything should have meaningful name.

Example lbl_FirstName

As pointed out, it only updates label 1 because that is what you told it to do. You need to have Lbl2.Text = whatever and Lbl3.Text = whatever. I would put them in a loop.

You have at some point in your code selected the Label from the first row in your grid. You simply need to grab the control from each row before you set the value like this:
For Each row As DataGridViewRow In FormulativeDV.Rows
   If Not row.IsNewRow Then
      Label lblCtl = (Label)row.FindControl("LabelName")
      If Not lblCtl = Nothing Then
         lblCtl.Text = (row.Cells(0).Value.ToString)
      End If
   End If
