Hi Saroj, 

What version of SQL Server are you running? The ODBC Driver 11 for SQL Server provides support for connecting to Microsoft SQL Server 2005, 2008, 2008R2, 2012, and 2014.  I suggest that you check that the SQL Server Native Client is installed on the machine running PHP as well.  This is a requirement for using the SQLSRV extension in PHP.   

Download Microsoft® SQL Server® 2012 Feature Pack from Official Microsoft Download Center 

PHP: Requirements - Manual 

You'll need to download Version 4.0 of the Microsoft Drivers for PHP for SQL Server.  Version 4.0 supports PHP 7.0+.
