Is there a way in dot net to create Report Engine like crystal reports for my appliction. The purpose is to allow the user to design reports of his own in the application.

I am not sure about understanding your question.
Are you exactly want to do it by yourself?
BTW, there are many other report generators and some of them have good enough designers (MS Reporting Services etc.).
Anyway, you can try VS SDK (if you want to support Visual Studio) or Windows Form application (or WPF).

Why not use Sql Server Reporting Services?
You can give the user a matrix of fields to display from a given table and thus drive your own custom reports engine. I did this for one client some years ago and the result was just as good as the user driven options in other reporting engines.
