Thanks chuck,
Do I need to write the logic in program and place them in some particular location, from there QPWDVLDPGM will pick up.
is it that way.

As we are using V5R4M0 version there is no option of QPWDRULES and
this new feature is in I.6 version.

please suggest if there any alternative thing to do this.

  Perhaps QPWDVLDPGM would be acceptable; i.e. by allowing user code to
implement the rules, for lack of those particular rules being provided
via the other password rule system values.
_i Password system values: Password validation program i_

Password validation program is a system value that is not in iSeries™

The Validate Password exit program is called when a Change Password
(CHGPWD) command or Change Password (QSYCHGPW) API is executed. The exit
program is called after the password composition rules have been checked.

The exit program examines the old and new password values for
conformance with customer unique password composition rules. The exit
program returns an indication whether the new password should be
accepted or rejected. ...
Note: The QPWDVLDPGM system value must be set to the value *REGFAC. If
the QPWDVLDPGM system value contains any other value, the validate
password exit programs will not be called.
