Hi Uday

Are you talking about an .rpm or a .deb or a .tar.gz or what?

Hi Uday
See 'man rpm'
in particular the query option '-q'
If yo want to use graphical applications : Kpackage in KDE or even YaST2 (it works also in a text console)
Regards.
Bernard

In KDE, konqueror will show some package information once you click the file.

Maybe it will help others in the future if you post what commands you used.

Why didn't you just use YAST? It does that for you.
