Hi Sudhanshu,

Yes it is compulsory.  The ball has to go up at least 16cm.

her his the section of the rule that is relevant.


The server shall then project the ball near vertically upwards, without imparting spin, so that it rises at least 16cm after leaving the palm of the free hand and then falls without touching anything before being struck.
