Here i have a confusion  ,org data are accessible in test class without using (SeeAllData=true)  or not .

Yes, it's possible to access custom setting in test classes. All you need to do is to create the custom setting records in test class and then access them.

Hi Jitendra,

Write one apex method in your class or in utiltiy class , insert your custom setting record in that method and return this custom setting through the method.  

Call this method in your test class to get the custom setting value. I am giving sample class below.

public class AccountTest {
     public static account createAccount() {
           // Create your custom setting here
           account a = new account(name ='Test acc');
           insert a;
           return a;
     public static testmethod void runtest() {
        account a = AccountTest.createAccount(); - This will return account values. 

please let me know if you need any help;
