The big problem here is that you have a null LayoutMamager. This is a very bad idea because when you run your program on a different computer (different screen resolution, different systen fonts) your controls will all be the wrong size.
It's also a bad idea because your JFrame has no control over the size or placement of any of its contents, so it doesn't have the info that scroll pane needs to scroll properly.
Also you are adding your controls to the JFrame, not the scroll pane.

Here's what you need to do:
create a JPanel with a sensible layout manager and add all your controls to that, and pack() it - do NOT use null manager or setBounds()!
create a scroll pane with your JPanel as its contents
add the scroill pane to your JFrame.

sir which layout i should choose because its vry diffcult to give alingment to various fields

It depends on how you want to arrange your fields, and how you want that to adapt when the user resizes the window, or you run on a different computer...

I suggest you start with the simplest layout manager possible - you can always go back later and replace it with a more sophisticated manager.

Here a good guide that will help you pick an appropriate one...
http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/uiswing/layout/visual.html

(one thing to remember is that you can "nest" layout managers by using JPanels - eg you may start with a BorderLayout for headings, content and buttons at the bottom. For the buttons you have a JPanel as the bottom component and place all the buttons along it using a FlowLayout)
