my main requirement is just to update a table at given instance of time and connecting to database and updations are all possible in servlets then why servlet is not a good choice?

A Servlet is a poor choice for this logic. Servlets exist to service requests, so to get the functionality you want you would need to wtire something that sends the request at your set time. Rather than doing this you could just use a Timer and TimerTask to do the same.
