Dear aneesha 
kindly be specific while asking the question , in this answer i assume u were asking about lewis dot structure .. 
After determining how many valence electrons there are in NO2-, place them around the central atom to complete the octets. There are a total of 18 valence electrons for the Lewis structure for NO2-. Nitrogen is the least electronegative atom in the NO2- lewis structure and therefore goes in the center of the structure. 
hope it clears "
kindly approve 
regards
