Can any body please let me know under what scenarios we use the XCTL and LINK command in CICS to invoke the other program ?

at the top of the page is a link to manuals.
suggest you read the CICS Appl Programmers guide.

You can think of an xctl is a 'go to' and a LINK is a perform.

the goback from a LINK'd to program will return to the program that executed the LINK.

the goback from a XCTL'd program will return to the last program that performed a LINK or the operating system.
