application resides at server and client accessing from his own system (web application). when the user selects a text file then I wanna read text file and send to server side.

Just think how dangerous it would be to access clients files from web application. Sorry mate you can not do it.

On the other hand you could use ActiveX, to implement what you want, but that is totally different story.

You can give them an upload control where they specifically choose to send you the file. As Yusuf said, if the user is willing to trust you and install an Active X control, that might work, but otherwise, an upload control is what you want. If you didn't know about the upload control, that's a good sign that you need to read a basic book on ASP.NET.
