If you have a question, post it here: not as a link to some other site.
Making members here jump through unnecessary hoops is not a way to encourage help.

Temp. measurement with NTC thermistor? Thats easy. just connect it to a suitable transducer.

A thermistor is a temperature transducer.

Does it has data sheet like IC , bjt I have buy it was resistance at 90 ohms which was not detectable by 741 open does ntc is in kohms?

Yes, NTC resistors have datasheets, e.g obtainable by clicking on a pdf symbol in a catalogue page such as this one.

Check catalogue pages such as the one in the post #8 link.

A transducer is a device that converts one form of energy to another. Usually a transducer converts a signal in one form of energy to a signal in another.

Transducers are often employed at the boundaries of automation, measurement, and control systems, where electrical signals are converted to and from other physical quantities (energy, force, torque, light, motion, position, etc.). The process of converting one form of energy to another is known as transduction.
