I wanted to know that in order to calculate the Line Integral of a Vector Field, is it necessary that the Vector Field has to be a Conservative Vector Field?

No. If a vector field is conservative it simplifies matters by applying the fundamental theorem of line integrals (which is the fundamental theorem of calculus in disguise), but it is not necessary.
