I have a spst relay(operating voltage-12v) using for switching the solenoid valve(24VDC and 0.5Amp) which connected through 24 V battery. relay is again connected to the transistor BJT NPN . So please suggest me that which transistor is most suitable.

Any NPN transistor that can handle the current that needs to flow though it.

No, you also need to check that MINIMUM Hfe is high enough that the required base currrent ( = load current/Hfe) isn't too large for the PIC to drive.

An optocoupler to a SCR or a Triack would be better.

When there is no more power to the LED in the optocoupler.

2N3700 should do you nicely.

With it at o.5 amps it will be functioning at Q.
