I'm not quite sure what you mean by this statement, can you provide more details?  The Hardware Status Tab is only available in vCenter.  Health Status is a link under the configuration tab, if connected directly to an ESX(i) Host.

when you will click on the host, ESX host. on the left hand pane the options will be displayed like general, summary, configurtion etc likewise there will be hardware status tab but its not coming for me.

i hope this can provide me hardware health from that. I need it. could anyone please help me on this.

the hardware status tab is only present if you use vCenter to manage the host.  Otherwise, you'll have to go to the configuration tab--health status, if connecting directly to the ESX(i) Host with the client.

From you description you are connecting directly to the host, not vCenter.

you are connected to vCenter, and on the left pane have a host higlighted?  You don't see the hardware status tab?  If not, check you Plug-Ins--Manage Plugins.  Is the vCenter Hardware Status Plugin installed and enabled?

the plug-in is enabled?  You see the hardware status tab, but you are getting some sort of error?  Maybe post a screen shot of what you are seeing?

yes, if it's enabled, it should work.  Make sure your vCenter Web Managment Webservices service is set to automatic/started.
