It is possible that i have 2 fluid one is lighter in density and other is heavier..then for same discharge head i need multistage pump for lighter one and single stage pump for heavier fluid.

In general, you need to design the pump for heavier fluid...

Sir i have to transfer fluid to same height but 1) lighter 2) heavier fluid then it is possible that for lighter fluid i require multistage pump but for heavier i need single stage pump...is this possible..

You must perform hydraulic calculations to ascertain. That's what engineering is about.

If you are talking about centrifugal pumps and suction pressure and viscosity of fluids are similar, you would need a single stage pump for lighter fluid and extra stages to reach the same height for heavier fluid. Pay attention to pump curves for different viscosities.

When you attempt to mix two liquids which have different densitiesthey separate when you stop mixing them. The "heavier" liquid deposits itself on the bottom and the "lighter" liquid deposits itself on top. There exists a wide range of liquids with various densities.

If I were you, I would have done hydraulic calculations for both the cases i.e. high and low density. I will put both the cases on the datasheet and let the vendor decide.

 

If you want a quick check if single stage or multistage pump is required, ask your Mechanical Dept. or google for pump selection chart some thing like the below:
