@ramgopalm545617  There us no OOB component available in AEM to render word document.

Also, No browsers currently have the code necessary to render Word Documents, However you can create your custom component which can show the word document using google docs or any other plugin.

 

For example:

 you can use Google Documents' Viewer via an <iframe> to display a remotely hosted .doc/.docx.

<iframe src="https://docs.google.com/gview?url=http://remote.url.tld/path/to/document
