Nilesh,

Absolutely any building parts made by Lego are allowed. The only 
restriction is on the number and type of motors and sensors. For 
details, see the bullets and chart under "Materials" under 
"Background Rules and Concepts" in the robot game rules.

* Everything you compete with must be made of LEGO elements in 
original factory condition, except LEGO string and tubing, which you 
may cut to length.
* There are no restrictions on the quantity or source of non-electric 
LEGO pieces, except that wind-up/pull-back "motors" are not allowed. 
Pneumatics are allowed.
* The electric elements used must be the LEGO MINDSTORMS type, and 
the total number of electric elements you may use in one match is 
limited

(There's a Q&A clarification on the wind-up motor restriction, that I 
won't profess to understand well enough to explain.)
