hi Satish
I have a Nikon VR 16-85mm, F3.5-5.6 G ED on a Nikon D90 that I think does a great job. It is a bit heavy though. I like the wide end going the extra bit to 16mm (24mm at 35mm equivalent) and I find I don't use telephoto that much. This is a very high quality lens with metal mount, etc. I am guessing you could get one for around $400 used.
Here is an interesting review on it (he thinks it is overpriced) that also may give you some other ideas.

I think another one to look at is the Tamaron 18-270mm if you want super-zoom.

I can post some photos if you wish.

good luck --- Dave
