OpenStreetMap does not sell access to its servers. You can either set up your own server (the software you need is Open Source, see wiki instructions), or you can pay for a commercial OpenStreetMap based geocoding service. A (not necessarily complete) list of providers is also on the wiki.

I understand but how to set up our own server and how can we configure with our software that we can access addresses from given latlong parameter. please assist me.

@CDesai I'm not sure that you do understand.

OpenStreetMap isn't a web service free for you to use. If you want to use a commercial service you're free to do so - contact one of the service providers mentioned above.

See especially the OSM wiki about Search Engines and try to find out what service or software can do reverse geocoding.

Then get in contact to the organisations / companies that drive those services, like for Photon... or for pelias or Search ... or should have also a solution.
