While i am inserting manually, assignment rules are comes into action if i checked Assign using active assignment rule option. But while inserting records from data loader, assignment rules are not working.

You need to put the ID of the assignment rule in the space provided.

From the error you posted it looks like you are using Assignmentrulename which is a placeholder. Even so you need to use the ID
