    Hello swapna_summit,

    Unfortunately it is not possible to achieve your requirement.

    Please be noted that the edit link will only/always load the form version which is in your JotForm account. There is no way to redirect it to your web page where you have embedded your form's source code. 

    Edit link actually redirect you to a separate page where our server populates the fields from the back end.

    Hope that answers your query.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
