Hi Roshni Dixit ! Almost all kids at this age category are of the same kind. Do not worry. Give your child plenty of choices.  This is the best way to increase your child’s sense of freedom and control, so that she will become more cooperative. Examples of choices are letting your child choose between a shower or a bath; which book to read; which toys to take into the tub; which fruit to eat for a snack. Give transition time when changing activities. Stop telling so many no's to your kid. When you must say “no,” tell your child that you’re sorry and give your child a reason.

Roshni Dixit what's the exact age of your child? Three years onwards is the age when children begin to assert themselves. They want things to be their way. So what you could do as Beenu Chauhan also suggested give options. The options will be of your choice and let the decision rest in child's hand. For instance : if the child wants a chocolate. so you can ask him, 'Would you like to have a chocolate post lunch or dinner? And 'would you like paneer or daal for your lunch?' By doing so child feels he is the one deciding things. So try to be calm while dealing with your child. Do not lose your temper and see how can you help him be independent and yet make healthy choices. Hope this helps!
