Hello Amit,

if the device is going to be a DHCP server you need to configure multiple dhcp pools

like

ip dhcp excluded-address 10.110.224.129 10.110.224.132

ip dhcp excluded-address 10.110.224.145

!

ip dhcp pool DATA

network 10.110.224.128 255.255.255.240

default-router 10.110.224.129

dns-server 10.98.112.32 10.55.0.32

netbios-name-server 10.52.64.37 10.24.128.151

lease 0 1

!

ip dhcp pool VOICE

network 10.110.224.144 255.255.255.248

default-router 10.110.224.145

dns-server 10.98.112.32 10.55.0.32

netbios-name-server 10.52.64.37 10.24.128.151

option 150 ip 10.98.67.5 10.55.61.4

lease 0 1

!

each pool will use the ip addresses of each vlan.

By receiving a request on vlan x the device will know from what pool to take the ip address to assign to the client

if other L3 devices exist they need the ip helper address configuration as explained by Adam on client vlan sides

Hope to help
