Dear Raju
 
 
Basically,
the electric current is the flow of positive charges but by the convention it is said that the current would be in the direction opposite to the flow of electrons as they have negative charge associated with it.
.
And if u see in semicinductors or diodes the flow of current is also due to the flow of holes with the flow of elctrons in opposte direcn.

Arun
