I have a web application which is developed in .net. I need to create an application(Not a website which can be accessed through url in mobiles.It should be an application which can be installed in mobiles.) which will support all major mobile OS.

As i am a hardcorded .net developer i am looking for pulgin's(SDK) for visual studio for various platform. Do we have any common SDK for all OS? Or at least SDK's for all OS.

Hello, to my knowledge you won't be able to target all mobile OS from withing Visual studio.
You'll have to download other IDE (and often you will have to pay for dowloading) that target other Platform.
On top of that, if you use VS2012 you'll not be able to target a mobile Platform, all you will be able to do is to develop a Silverlight application that will run on Windows Phones.
If you want to target Android I would recommend Xamarin, for iOS I don't think there is an IDE that accepts anythng else than ObjectiveC.... you might find compilers that will precompile C# to ObjectiveC but I really don't know how good they are.

If you want to go for native application for each o/s, you need to target that o/s only and build the application.
With VS, you can create windows mobile native apps.
For android, Iphone, you can still use VS using mono.
You can check my application creating android Apps using mono C#.
