How can i make Inner class abstract? In the code given below it gives Compiler error as abstract class cannot be instantiated. Then what is the right way of doing it??

Right, Punit is correct.

No need to implement the method since it is not abstract.

Remember that Abstract classes cannot be instantiated even though they are not inner classes. You should create a concrete or non-abstract class to that extends your abstract class. For example using your code we would like to have something like this:
