Assuming you don't care about ties, something like this should work:
SQL
WITH RankedEmployees As
(
    SELECT
        EmpId,
        EmpName,
        Esal,
        DeptId,
        ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY DeptId ORDER BY Esal DESC) As RN
    FROM
        Emp
)
SELECT
    E.EmpId,
    E.EmpName,
    E.Esal,
    D.DName
FROM
    Dept As D
    INNER JOIN RankedEmployees As E
    ON E.DeptID = D.DeptId
    And E.RN = 1
;

If you do want to show ties, replace ROW_NUMBER with RANK.

ROW_NUMBER[^]
RANK[^]
