I want to add a custom webpart on a custom list form and remove the Save and Cancel buttons which are default. Is what i'm trying to do possible? If yes please tell me a good approach to do it?

One way at least is to use this CSS:

.ms-formtoolbar {
  display: none;

This is for 2013, and ListFormWebPart (I'm guessing you might be using both 2013 and this Web Part) – eirikb Apr 14 '14 at 10:30
i want to access something like the codebehind of the default save and cancel buttons? Is it possible? – luckydeveloper Apr 14 '14 at 10:47
If you have a completely custom form, then you should be able to edit the XSLT and just remove the buttons from there – eirikb Apr 14 '14 at 10:47
say if i hide the default save button by the code which you have mentioned and add a visual webpart on that form which has a save button by itself then will any event receiver related to the list run when i click on my custom save button? – luckydeveloper Apr 14 '14 at 10:52
That does sound like a horrible solution, but yes in theory that should work. Any button of type submit on the page should trigger a postback which should work as expected. – eirikb Apr 14 '14 at 10:53
