    Hi! can anyone tell me when to use List<emp> and ArrayList. Because both of them have the same capability of adding the object.

    The List class is the generic equivalent of ArrayList class.

    You should obviously prefer List (or generics in general), as they promote type safety.
    The only reason why you might like to use ArrayList might be if you want to pass it into an existing (1.x) .NET method. [[ Because .NET 1.x did not support generics. ]]
