Even if the electrical potential at an equitorial plane of a dipole is 0, and dV/dr=E, then why the electrical field at the equitorial plane not 0.

Expert Answer:

BEcause the electric field on the equitorial plane is perpendicular to the equtorial plane. you are trying to apply this formula along the plane . You are correct as the component of electric field along the plane is zero.
