I am trying to do partial differentiation using symbolic, but getting some error. Attaching herewith the work.

G[x_, y_] := x y
D[G[x, y], y]
(\[PartialD]G (x, y))/\[PartialD]y

want to use symbolic for better understanding. Kindly help.

You need to use square bracket and subscript notation for partial derivative to make it work.

Sir Thank you for your reply. I want to use the other option.

G[x, y] := x y [PartialD][G (x, y)]/[PartialD]y

still getting error.

I don't think you can change the behaviour of the symbol for partial derivatives, however you can use another letter:

\[GothicD] /: \[GothicD][func_]/\[GothicD][var_] := D[func, var];
G[x_, y_] := x y;
\[GothicD][G[x, y]]/(\[GothicD][x])
