    @Sivaranjani N For service bus only one application can consume the same message from the same entity.

    if not , is there any way to create subscription dynamically without creating upfront in azure portal ?

    You can create the subscription on the fly using the REST API, or the SDK

    As per your below scenario if you want multiple applications to read the same message/event from the same entity, then you should leverage the event hub rather than service bus.

    Send (msg-1) to Topic-A 
       sub-A is created under Topic A 
    	 ---- app1-- listening to sub A- (msg-1)
    	 ---- app2 - listening to sub A- (msg-1)
    	 -----app3 - listening to sub A- (msg-1)
    	 -----app4 - listening to sub A- (msg-1)

    Any number of applications can read the same event and use checkpointg feature where readers mark or commit their position within a partition event sequence.
