It is possible to use listView inside a scrollView.Please See the below Answer
But ListView doesn't support nested scrolling, therefore you need to subclass it and implement NestedScrollingChild. Fortunately, the Support library provides NestedScrollingChildHelper class, so you just have to create an instance of this class and call its methods from the corresponding methods of your view class.
If you want to make nested scrolling work on pre-Lollipop devices, which you probably do, you have to use corresponding utility classes from the Support library. First you have to replace you ScrollView with NestedScrollView. The latter implements both NestedScrollingParent and NestedScrollingChild so it can be used as a parent or a child scroll container.
Starting from API Level 21 (Lollipop) nested scroll containers are officially supported by Android SDK. There're a bunch of methods in View and ViewGroup classes which provide this functionality. To make nested scrolling work on the Lollipop you have to enable it for a child scroll view by adding android:nestedScrollingEnabled="true" to its XML declaration or by explicitly calling setNestedScrollingEnabled(true).
Thanks Pixie, but you must have noticed that I am using a tabhost with two tabs each containing a separate listview. In this case how can I add headers or footers?
Yeah, putting tabs into a ListView would be strange. But your layout is very very complicated. I can't even understand what you want it to look like. Anyway you'd better make it simpler because a ListView nested into a ScrollView which is nested into another ScrollView looks strange and will not work.
You shouldn't put a ListView inside a ScrollView because the ListView class implements its own scrolling and it just doesn't receive gestures because they all are handled by the parent ScrollView. I strongly recommend you to simplify your layout somehow. For example you can add views you want to be scrolled to the ListView as headers or footers.
yes, it's possible to nest scrollable views, but it also indicates that your layout (and UE design) is a bit complex
