I'm guessing you want to print all lines which match your condition?

awk -F, '($6 == 0) && ($7 == 0)' inputfile

yes..i want to print all the lines in which either of column 6 or column 7 is non zero.
But the condion is not working..Not sure what is the problem.

OK, so invert that:

awk -F, '($6 != 0) || ($7 != 0)' inputfile

not working..
I want to work as below.
Suppose there are 3 rows in files and clumn 6 and 7 have below values.

Except above case mail should come in all the cases.

I don't understand... Your 7-column file is a pair of zeroes per line?
# 7
