Hi Vikas Goel,
From the error message, I think that service is inactive, or the service needs security validation.
I recommend you google it and ask for this issue in the Google products forums.
I hope it is helpful to you.

I think they pulled this service a few weeks ago. (And officially stopped supporting it quite some time ago). They probably aren't happy with the idea of people using a SOAP service to get their search results when the bulk of their advertising revenue
is from ads and clicks.
If you want a codebehind solution you may want to look at Yahoo
Boss and find out if it can be invoked via Soap/HttpWebRequest. I know
Bing's APIs can allow SOAP calls.

So what is the differences in code of this program with ajax search and Google API?
Can you explain more?
