Hi, Sundaran,

In what situations we use 'ONTO" and "INTO" in English?

Have you checked the dictionary? Prepositions have a lot of possible uses.

Here I can only tell you that both "onto" and "into" imply some movement, as a result of which somebody or something ends up on a surface (that is the case with "onto") or in some enclosed area (in the case of "into"). Compare:

- The cat jumped onto the roof. (After that it was on the roof)

- The squirrel climbed into the hole. (After that it was inside the hole)
