Hello Deepak Agrawal,
you should look for the side-effects of the packages to be implemented in SAP MarketPlace.
There's plenty of information on this, but you can start here: https://service.sap.com/side-effects. There you can choose the SAP Product (FI-CA?), the Product version and hit 'continue', it will take you to the Lowest Support Package (the one you're currently at) and Highest Support Package (your target level). You can also customize your searches in tab 'My requests'.
Additionally, you can check the ABAP SP Information in https://service.sap.com/spmanager and each package information, by clicking on the package name:
(there you'll see the notes each package contains, objects updated, stack information and more)
I hope this information helps.
I would strongly encourage you to you Solution Manager maintenance optimizer when selecting the packages.
With this, you input your source levels and the target sp levels you want to reach, solution manager will then check all prequisites and automatically include any missing packages in the queue so that you have a smooth transition and avoid missing required packages.
