According to me 'have you any plans' is correct.

It's not really a correct sentence. The words are OK, but a sentence begins with a capital letter and ends with a punctuation mark. In the case, a question mark. It is important to get into this habit, especially in asking a question on this forum.

 

Have you any plans?

I agree.

A speaker of American English would probably say "Do you have any plans?"

Although I agree that there might be some regional and register bias in the construction, it certainly is not the way I would teach present simple interrogatives at ESL level. Questions like these are best formed with a helping verb plus base form.

First, Suresh, the word "grammar" is spelled G-R-A-M-M-A-R (not -E-R) !!!

 

"Have you any plans?" is *correct* usage; however, it is more likely to be heard from a speaker of British English.
