Since this morning I am not able to use apt-get command on my Ubuntu 9.04 It's throwing the following error :

W: Failed to fetch 404 Not Found

I think Ubuntu changed its repository link and my /etc/apt/source.list did not update accordingly.

Is anybody here facing same problem ?

Maybe you could change your repository temporarily for an other? Try to replace the "in.", i suppose it will work fine. You'll put it again after.
