Hi Chethan,

A typical micrometer screw gauge has a maximum accuracy of ±0.005 mm (0.01 mm readings) whereas a venier caliper has a typical maximum accuracy of ±0.05 mm (0.1 mm readings). Of course, different versions might have better or worse accuracies. They are also used differently because of their different shapes and forms.

And these websites will also help you.
