I want a cascading dropdown list in a SharePoint visual web part.

How can i do this? Any way to use Ajax? Need an example with code.

Well you can create an Application page with WebMethods defined and than use simple jQuery Ajax to call the methods..

Please have a look at
Call WebMethod from JS in Visual web Part

     type: "POST",
     url: siteUrl + "/_layouts/SolutionName/WebMethods.aspx/Recount",
     data: "{'data':'" + data + "'}",
     contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
     dataType: "json",
     async: true,
     success: function (data) {
     error: function (result) {


You can simply use SPServices.Cascading Dropdown
