Dear shanky

if you are taking about a single rigid body then its center of mass will also move if the body moves.

 and if you are consederinf a system of more than two body then its center of mass may remain in rest provided that

  = m1 V1 + m2V2 + m3V3 + ....... mnVn = 0 

  where m1,m2,m3,m4   are the mass of different body  and V1,V2,V3 are their velocities repetively .

if m1 V1 + m2V2 + m3V3 + ....... mnVn ≠  0   then center of mass of the center will also move.

Please feel free to post as many doubts on our discussion forum as you can.
