1) "to make a self driving a bot" -- It's not clear what you wish to say.....
Do you mean an autonomous bot ? one that doesn't need a remote control?

2) "necessary to consider the torque specf of the stepper motor for my project" ----------- mostly the answer is YES

3) "suggest me the req torque specificaton" -------- how can we do that ?
We haven't seen your bot.......we don't know how much it weighs and we have no idea how fast do you want it to run (or rather,crawl)

If you want help , post details of your problem CLEARLY.

is it necessary to have an interface ic when i use a microcontroller to run a geared motor for my robot ?

I don't get what exactly you mean by an interface IC but as far i've seen, you can't run your motors directly from the uC. You'll need a motor driver in between the uC and motor. Hope this is what you're talking about.

And yes as User kp_chd says, please post more details if you want your queries answered.
