Dear Saurabh
 

CCl4 is not hydrolyzed as SiCl4 because of two reasons:

1. Carbon does not have d-orbitals because it is found in 2nd period i.e. second shell so as the 3d -orbitals are not available and so it can not expand its co-ordination no. above 4.

Since, in carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) all the valencies are satisfied, so it can not add any water molecule by any mean so the reaction becomes ;

CCl4 + H2O ---> No reaction.

While in case of silicon, it exists in period 3, which has 3d-orbitals vacant , and so it can expand its octet and can have the co-ordination no. above four so that the additional water molecule can donate a lone pair of electron to the Silicon,
