Currently when I add assembly which is created by us to project through "add reference" dialog default "copy local " property for added assembly is "True".
Is there any way it is possible, when I add assebly in project ,it has default "copy local " property "False" ??

The CopyLocal property doesn't just default to true. Its value is determined based on the state of the reference. It is evaluated in this order:
- if reference = project --> true
- if reference in GAC --> false
- if reference is mscorlib.dll --> false
- if reference is in Framework SDK folder --> false
- otherwise --> true
You could probably do something through a macro, but that would seem to be more trouble than its worth. I'm sorry that I don't have a better answer.

Is this information stored in a file for the solution or project so that a script could modify the file directly and change all reference copy-local properties?

Call me a necrobumper, but 6 years later I'm still running into the same problem and still don't have a solution. That's why I created this nuget package to help me out https://nuget.org/packages/CopyLocalFalse
