Thank you sir

I have got one of the same answer as in this discussion that during MD
simulation of biological macromolecule chances of change in shape thus
NPT should be used for MD simulations macromolecule (when shape changes
is expected) because volume will be change. If there is no significant
change in shape of macromolecule NVT can be use.

NPT must be used during equilibration just before changing to constant volume ensemble.
