Hi Vishal,
Its better you refer Clause number 27 in IS 456 : 2000 for the expansion joints. There its clearly explained.
Generally Expansion joints depends upon various factors like,
1. Change in plan dimensions
2. Temperature and Climatic conditions of the place.
Normally structure exceeding 45 meters in length are designed with one or more expansion joints.
