my default gateway is vlan 30 IP  192.168.30.1  and mac address of my default gateway is  (bia 000d.28bc.fd80)************************************

i know switches have static mac address assigned .Do this mac address is assigned to specfic switch port like fa0/23 etc?

Or is this mac address always reserverd for SVI ?

my question is even if we have different vlans with different IP address assigned how come all of them have same mac address?

You have actually asked the same question a while back in this forum. Perhaps you just forgot.

Have a read of this document which explains all about mac-address usage on Catalyst switches -
