    Hi Manpreet,

    Custom settings are similar to custom objects and enable application developers to create custom sets of data, as well as create and associate custom data for an organization, profile, or specific user.

    Custom Setting enables efficient access without the cost of repeated queries to the database. This data can then be used by formula fields, validation rules, Apex, and the Web services API. Custom Setting are of 2 types Hierarchy Custom Settings and List Custom Setting.
