Hi Kunal,

there's not "a format supported by shapefile". When mapserver read the 
mapfile, it generates an image according to the imagetype setting (png 
in your situation).

First thing to run is:

shp2img -m yourmapfile -o test.png

This will generate an image reading your mapfile.
If this one is fine, the problem is in your ka-Map! configuration.

Let me know if need more help
