Any of those help I want to put specific format while entering value in my edittext. , Use a textwatcher as follows:
code :
private class GenericTextWatcher implements TextWatcher{

        private View view;
        private GenericTextWatcher(View view) {
            this.view = view;

        public void beforeTextChanged(CharSequence charSequence, int i, int i1, int i2) {}
        public void onTextChanged(CharSequence s, int i, int i1, int i2) {

            case R.id.ed_youredittextid://this is your xml id

        public void afterTextChanged(Editable editable) {


        private void insertCommaIntoNumber(EditText etText,CharSequence s)
            try {
                if (s.toString().length() > 0) 
                    String convertedStr = s.toString();
                    if (s.toString().contains(".")) 
                            convertedStr = customFormat("###,###.##",Double.parseDouble(s.toString().replace(",","")));
                        convertedStr = customFormat("###,###.##", Double.parseDouble(s.toString().replace(",","")));

                    if (!etText.getText().toString().equals(convertedStr) && convertedStr.length() > 0) {

            } catch (NullPointerException e) {

 public String customFormat(String pattern, double value) {
        DecimalFormat myFormatter = new DecimalFormat(pattern);
        String output = myFormatter.format(value);
        return output;

    public boolean chkConvert(String s)
        String tempArray[] = s.toString().split("\\.");
        if (tempArray.length > 1) 
            if (Integer.parseInt(tempArray[1]) > 0) {
                return true;
                return false;
            return false;
edyourdittext.addTextChangedListener(new GenericTextWatcher(edyouredittext));
//this is the edittext with which you want to bind the textwatcher

this will help After exploring more on this issue, I have found the solution. Where I am calculating the cursor position. I have removed onSelectionChanged(...) method from my code and I am handling selection inafterTextChanged(...) method. In the following code I have made changes in afterTextChanged(...) :
code :
    public void afterTextChanged(Editable editable) {

        String str = editable.toString();
        String number = str.replaceAll("[,]", "");
        if (number.equals(previousNumber) || number.isEmpty()) {
        previousNumber = number;

        int startText, endText;
        startText = editText.getText().length();

        int selectionStart = editText.getSelectionStart();

        String formattedString = prefix + formatNumber(number);
        endText = editText.getText().length();

        int selection = (selectionStart + (endText - startText));
