Hi Priya,

See this following link https://developer.salesforce.com/page/Using_Data_Loader_from_the_command_line that explains how to use comandline data loader
Use dataloadercliq (https://code.google.com/p/dataloadercliq/) this will help you to create the necassary files. 
Regarding you want to run it at specific time you will have to create a windows bat file and schedule it to call your process.

Regards,

Scheduling Data loader in Windows: Click on Start –> Control Panel –> System and Security –> Administrative Tools –> Task Scheduler.
1. Click on Create Task link.

2. Provide a name to the Scheduled task.

3.  Set up Trigger Timing as desired for Data Loader Jobs.

4. Set up an Action with action type as “Start a Program” and add process.bat file (created above).

5. Save the task.

Windows Scheduler will run the Data Loader processes as per Trigger time set in windows scheduler Task.
