Note: My fiscal year starts from Oct so the average should be calculated form oct of that year.

Can some one help me to achieve this. Thanks in advance.

Hi @Reddy5833 ,

 

Please create two calculated columns:

Year = 
VAR _start_of_year =
    STARTOFYEAR ( 'Date'[Date], "9/30" )
VAR _fin_year =
    YEAR ( _start_of_year )
RETURN
    _fin_year
Column = 
VAR _avg =
    CALCULATE (
        AVERAGE ( 'Table'[Value] ),
        FILTER (
            'Table',
            'Table'[Category] = EARLIER ( 'Table'[Category] )
                && 'Table'[Year] = EARLIER ( 'Table'[Year] )
        )
    )
VAR _fill =
    IF ( 'Table'[Value] <> BLANK (), 'Table'[Value], _avg )
RETURN
    _fill

Result:
