    Thanks for reply. Actually the old site was in Joomla and New site is in .Net. So what we have to do is if user request for old url , it will take him automatically to the new URL for example if user request for www.example.com/warranty ,  it will lead him automatically to www.example.com/test/warranty.aspx

    We have around 198 URL needs to be redirect so SEO would not be affected. We have placed following code for the 301 redirection in global.asax file:

    #region  301 redirect
            if (Request.Url != null)
                // 301-redirect for Page 1 to Page 2
                //string xmlpath = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["ReadXml"];
                string xmlpath = HttpContext.Current.Request.PhysicalApplicationPath + "xml/301redirect.xml";
                DataSet ds = new DataSet();
                DataRow[] dr = ds.Tables["URLS"].Select("OldURL='" + Request.Url.ToString().ToLower() + "'");
                if (dr.Length > 0)
                    string URLOLD = dr[0]["OldURL"].ToString();
                    string NewUrl = dr[0]["NewURL"].ToString();
                    string key = URLOLD;
                    key = key.ToLower();
                    if (Request.Url.ToString().ToLower().Contains(key) == true)
                        Response.Status = "301 Moved Permanently";
                        Response.AddHeader("Location", NewUrl.ToLower());
            string urlChkForLower = Context.Request.RawUrl;
            if (Regex.IsMatch(urlChkForLower, @"[A-Z]") == true)
                Context.Response.Status = "301 Moved Permanently";
                Context.Response.AddHeader("Location", urlChkForLower.ToLower());

    But by applying this , the Ajax controls in website stopped working. How to solve it or is there any other way to implement?

    You can use the HttpRedirect settings using IIS7. This requires admin access to the web server.

    You can also use a HTTP module instead of using global.asax for better performance. The module is configured on your web config and it can applied your URL redirect rules. Cache your rules in memory to avoid database access overhead.

    If using IIS 7 or higher, the simplest solution I found is to use the httpRedirect element in my web.config. I wrote a small article here: ASP.NET 301 permanent redirects: the best solution
