Is it possible to create sectional view of a "Surface body" in 2D
drawing?

No.
The closest you can come is to trim the surface where you want to section it and make a drawing of that.

You can use the thicken feature to thicken the surface body which in turn will be cut by a section line in a drawing.

Basically, we are building light weight models for our heavy equipements to use it for Plant Engineering. Surface Body parts are less in file size than Solid Body parts. But the only BIG issue is I couldn't make any section views of that. Even Surface Bodies are not appeared in a section view eventhough the section line is not cutting that body.

You need to make out a ER (Ehanncement Request). SW Corp really has a very big issue with making things work consistently. Seriously, SW Corp needs to be told what to do because,... overall, they don't get it, imho. So, if you want to increase the odds,.. if Inventor (not sure?), MDT (I'm think it can?), SolidEdge (not sure), Rhino3D (yes it can), Alibre (not sure), Vellum (not sure), IronCad (I think it can?), concepts3D (I think it can?), Pro/e (it can) or others can do it, let SW Corp know because, they respond better to change when the competition has it but little towards ER's.

I am very happy Paul, to see a reply from you. I realy inspired by your web site zxys. Sure Paul, I will send an ER to SolidWorks now.

Refer below, there are already few ERs (2 and 3) related to my post. However I have also registered my suggestions in SoildWorks Enhancement Request forum.

In the model, you can do a Section View and the surface previews as cut, but when you accept the section, the surface reverts to being un-cut. That's one that frustrates me big time. Plus, you can't select surfaces when in section view mode.
