Hi Laxman,
It is possible only when you do manual customization every day.

On the start of the day, Edit the autonumber field and change the field type to 'Text' 
Save it.

Again edit the Name field and change the field type to 'Auto Number' then it will ask for the starting Number there you can put '1'


Another option is creating one more text field making it as external id and then updating that field with a trigger on that specific object.

Thank you
