i think there is session problem due to which captcha is not vlidating how to correct it

Works fine for me, what error you get? Here's my test, based on your scripts:

<?php

session_start();

?>

<form method="post">
Validation code:
<img src="captcha.php?rand=<?php echo rand();?>" id='captchaimg'><br />
<label for='6_letters_code'>Enter the code above here:</label>
<input type="text" name="6_letters_code" />
</form>

<?php
if($_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] == 'POST')
{
    echo 'POST: ';
    print_r($_POST);
    echo '<br />SESSION: ';
    print_r($_SESSION);
    echo '<br />Result: ';
    if(empty($_SESSION['6_letters_code']) || strcasecmp($_SESSION['6_letters_code'], $_POST['6_letters_code']) != 0)
    {
        echo 'false';
    }
    else
    {
        echo 'true';
    }
}

By the way: an ID cannot start by number, so id="6_letters_code" is wrong and will not work if you use JQuery & other javascript frameworks, also it's not a good idea to send an error message declaring that the user does or doesn't exits, it's better to return a generic message as user/password wrong, otherwise an attacker can understand if an account exists and try to find his specific password.

you have written all the code in one php file
but i wrote it in 3 files so i am tinking there is a session error

1

Ok, then move this to the top of register.php file:

echo 'POST: ';
print_r($_POST);
echo '<br />SESSION: ';
print_r($_SESSION);
die();

place it right after <?php session_start(); and check if the values sent by $_POST and saved in $_SESSION are the same.

i think so too

i tried it and it is returning the values the vlues on this page but if i am entering different captcha still it is not validating

Ok, so the problem is that your script doesn't stop if you send a wrong captcha? In your conditional statment you are not stopping the action, just setting $msg variable, if you want to stop the execution the most immediate solution is to use die() as in the other statments:

if(empty($_SESSION['6_letters_code']) || strcasecmp($_SESSION['6_letters_code'], $_POST['6_letters_code']) != 0)
{
    die("The Validation code does not match!");
}

This will stop the script but it is not the best user experience. Also when you check if user already exists you should stop the execution:

if($user_count > 0)
{
    die("User exists.");
}

A better solution for handling the errors is to use an array and to check if it is populated, for example:

$errors = array();

$username = 'Shikha_1';
$password = 'p4ss';

if( ! ctype_alpha($username))
{
    $errors['username'] = 'Only alphanumeric characters are allowed for the username.';
}

if(count($password) < 8)
{
    $errors['password'] = 'Password too short';
}

if(count($errors) > 0)
{
    # redirect to form with error messages:
    $_SESSION['errors'] = $errors;
    header('Location: register.html');
}
else
{
    # insert query & other stuff
}
