I have try to add Url as value in List Instance.

  <ListInstance Title="Lists Link"
            Description="All Lists Link Url in This Custom List"
      <Field Name="Title">News</Field>
      <Field Name="ListUrl">/Lists/News/AllItems.aspx</Field>
      <Field Name="Title">Tips Of The Week</Field>
      <Field Name="ListUrl">/Lists/TipsOfTheWeek/AllItems.aspx</Field>

its add in field but when m creating site collection url was contain root web url..

like as suppose my site collection is http://gtsp10:1000/sites/rbk/Lists/TipsOfTheWeek/AllItems.aspx but redirect to http://gtsp10:1000/Lists/TipsOfTheWeek/AllItems.aspx..

Is this right way to going?

There maybe a special character like $site or something ? In any case you could always revert to using a feature activation event receiver and code the creation of the data in the list.

Use ~site/... or ~sitecollection/...
