I want to know about the service provider, actually Is there any third party
availabla that gives specific zipcode /areacode on the basis of longitude and latitude value to find the specific location on Google map.

Thanks in advance

I haven't used the Google Maps API so can't help with that, but to convert latitude and longitude into zip codes you need reverse geocoding and I don't think you can do that with Google Maps (but I could well be wrong). For this I can highly recommend Geonames (http://www.geonames.org/).
