Check the account under which the SSIS job runs to see if that has access to the share / directory where the file is.

Thanks a lot for quick response

actually am new to SSIS.

Where exactly we can come to know on which account the SSIS is running ?

when i have checked for the SYSTEM : @[Username] by default its using sysytem login. It was taking my credentials only.

How are you executing the package? Manually from a workstation? Or via a SQL Agent job? If the former, it will use your credentials to execute the package and your credentials would need access to that file location. If the latter, the account that is running the SQL Agent service would need access to the file share as well.
