I created HiddenField in jQuery ande allocated DropDown text to HiddenField.
JavaScript
$('[id$=ddlCountry]').change(function () {
    var selectedOption = $("#ddlCountry option:selected").text();
    $("<input/>", { type: 'hidden', name: 'CountryName' }).val(selectedOption).appendTo("form");

    alert("Handler for .change() called.");
});


In code behind
C#
Response.Write(Request["CountryName"]);


To read HiddenField text
So I got text in my code behind.

Thanks everyone for participating.

Regards,
SUNIL

Nice Workaround... :) My 5+. :)
If you have a select element that looks like this:
XML
<select id="ddlViewBy">
<option value="1">test1</option>
<option value="2" selected="selected">test2</option>
<option value="3">test3</option>
</select>

Running this code:
JavaScript
var e = document.getElementById("ddlViewBy");
var strUser = e.options[e.selectedIndex].value;

Would make strUser be 2. If what you actually want is test2, then do this:
JavaScript
var e = document.getElementById("ddlViewBy");
var strUser = e.options[e.selectedIndex].text;

Which would make strUser be test2

Sir i want to fetch it in my c# code
For HTML DropDownList

Add runat="server" attribute to mark-up and use the following code in code behind.
C#
string selectedCountry = ddlCountry.Items[ddlCountry.SelectedIndex].Text;
