Hi Sampath,

I wrote some small code for your scenario, here is the code snippet

<apex:page controller="multiSelectPicklist">
    <apex:form >
        <apex:repeat value="{!listOfPicklist}" var="list">
            <apex:inputcheckbox value="{!list.selected}"/>
public class multiSelectPicklist {
    public list<picklistClass> listOfPicklist{get;set;}
    public multiSelectPicklist(){
        listOfPicklist = new list<picklistClass>();
        picklistClass tempPicklist;
        for(double i=1;i<=4;i++){
            tempPicklist = new picklistClass();
            tempPicklist.picklistString =i +' String';

    public class picklistClass{
        public boolean selected{get;set;}
        public string picklistString{get;set;}

Hi, For such scenarios, You need to take help of the jQuery libraries such asj Kendo, Angular ... With default visual force functionality you cannot create such picklist.
You need implement in such ways
