Hey there @Sashi - have you tried other distributions on this hardware? How'd they do? Kali has some networking disabled from the get-go..

And i'll come out and say to please take a look at the readme for this forum.

I have installed Kali Linux 2020.b using Ethernet in my win 10 as dual boot but I can't see wifi options there and even I tried out all possible steps available in YouTube like compat wireless it shows Bluetooth and wifi not doesn't show the available networks if I reboot it retains the old state like only the Ethernet connection is available please help me with this..

Try installing the dhcpcd package. Open a terminal and type
Code:
apt install dhcpcd5
hit enter and wait for the install process to be finished, once installed type
Code:
dhcpcd
hit enter and that should do it.
NOTE: If you're not root then use the
Code:
sudo
command before any of that, i.e
Code:
sudo apt install dhcpcd5

Hope this helps! :)

Did you try connecting to wifi and it didn't work? Open a terminal and type
Code:
ip link
hit enter, in the output, look for a line where it reads STATE and tell us whether it says UP or DOWN Also, I think you could take a screenshot from the systm, using some tool like ksnip or flameshot, in fact, I think Kali ships with one of those, can't remember just now. Cause honestly, those pics taken with a phone ... know what I mean?
