Rajdeep,

You've got three options:

- Keep using xtivreg.  This will generate consistent, albeit 
inefficient, estimates even if one or more endogenous regressors is 
dichotomous.  You could also consider Wooldridge's suggestion of 
using the probit to generate fitted values and using these fitted 
values as instruments in your IV equation.  See e.g. the discussion 
on Statalist earlier this year:

http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2004-09/msg00352.html

- Use a canned program such as treatreg or cdsimeq and include dummy 
variables for your fixed effects.

- Program it yourself.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Mark
