Hi Dhanraj,

*In case of id3v1x:*

To find a *ID3v1*/1.1 tag just search for the word "TAG" 128 bytes from the
end of a file.

*In case of id3v2x:*

The ID3v2 tag header, which should be the first information in the file, is
10 bytes as follows:
•*ID3/file identifier "ID3" *
•ID3 version $02 00
•ID3 flags %ab000000
•ID3 size 4 * %0xxxxxxx

If there is any more query, please let me know.
