Thank you for the reply.
   At least can I allow to run /bin/* on /var/* ?? i tried sudo setup like

User_Alias FULLTIME = rai,test
FULLTIME  ALL = (ALL)  PASSWD: /bin/mkdir /var/*, /bin/cp /var/*, /bin/rm
/var/* /bin/mv /var/*

It works but is there any way atleast I can say

User_Alias FULLTIME = rai,test
FULLTIME  ALL = (ALL)  PASSWD: /bin/* /var/*, /usr/local/bin/* /var/*

it works on some commands. For example "sudo tar xvzf /var/test.tgz"
Sorry, user rai is not allowed to execute 'sudo tar xvzf /var/test.tgz' as
root on server.
 Need more help on this. if this works I am fine.

Perhaps you have more in mind to "chroot" his environment?

Read the manpage (man chroot) for chroot and think about it.

IMHO it's not done (or even doable?) with sudo.

Unix is the only operating system, where 'more magic' really works.
