I need to do the following

User will login to my application and upload AutoCAD file
User will open the file at later date to view and edit within the browser
User will need the ability to Redline the document. This includes ability to draw lines and basic shapes on the top of document.
User will save the revised AutoCAD file in .dwg format
I am looking for a third party development Tool Kit or API hat will allow me to
1.Display AutoCAD file within browser
2.Allow user to draw on top of it

Note: I cannot install anything on my client machine however browser plugin is acceptable.
Any help will be appreciated.

The Add-in(Autodesk Design Review Browser Add-in)suggested by you doesn't display the image on browser instead it downloads that file on browser

Autodesk is the best place to start for the functionality you wanted, try their other products on that site.

We have tried using AutoDesk to view .dwg files in browser but it requires installation of separate application on users machine (i.e. AutoDesk Design Review) which is not acceptable in our case.Is there any other way to achieve this?

If the makers of autocad don't have what you want then you are out of luck and had better rethink your requirements.
