I am having table t1 having column c1 with values v1, v2, v3

I need to form a dynamic query which needs to consider the t1 table's c1 values in where condition.

dynamic sample query:

select name from Table
Where value in (v1,v2,v3).

Don't quite know what you meant by "dynamic". If you mean that they will come in as parameters, there are a few different ways you could handle it.

One would be to put those values into a table and join on that. For example:
INSERT INTO @Table2 VALUES ('v1'),('v2'),('v3');

INNER JOIN @Table2 t2 ON t1.VALUE = t2.VALUE
If you are getting the values as a string delimited parameter, you can first use a string splitter to split the string into the 3 tokens and use the above approach. Or, you could do something like this:
DECLARE @parameterString VARCHAR(32) = 'v1,v2,v3';
SELECT name FROM Table1
WHERE ','+@parameterString+',' LIKE '%,'+VALUE+',%';
This assumes VALUE is a string column.
