I am noticing frequent AEIL/ ASRA in my CICS/online modules. The only thing I understand about these abends that they mostly occurs if the code does not handle specific code situations. example is CICS RESP is not handled properly.
Can anyone suggest me what I should specificly look for avoiding AEIL/ ASRA abends. or please share if you have any other information.

You need to learn how to find and use the CICS Messages and Codes (MAC) manual for your release of CICS (hint: check the IBM web site or click the Manual button at the top of this page). If you do so, and look up AEIL for example, you will find
Explanation: FILENOTFOUND condition not handled.
This is one of a number of abends issued by the EXEC interface program. Because of their similar characteristics these abends are described as a group.
See the description of abend AEIA for further details.
Knowing that you used a file name in your program that is not defined to CICS makes it MUCH easier to fix your problem and debug your program.
