Hello Neha,

I am not completely sure I understand your case, but in the situation 
you describe, I believe you need to do a simple placement of your 
cylinder inside your detector. This cylinder can be full (not hollow).

For example, assuming
     - your material in the world volume is air
     - your detector is a box, placed directly in the world volume
     - and the hole is air
you can implement you setup with:
     . create the world volume, fill it with air
     . create your detector box (G4Box), create the detector box 
G4LogicalVolume passing this box and the material (Ge ?) as arguments, 
place this G4LogicalVolume in the world volume using a G4PVPlacement;
     . create the hole (G4Tubs), create the hole detector 
G4LogicalVolume passing this tubs and giving "air" as the material, and 
then place this hole G4LogicalVolume cylinder into the detector box 
G4LogicalVolume, using a G4PVPlacement.

You will have the volume hierachy : hole placed in detector placed in 
world volume.

Then at tracking time, when the G4Track is in the detector box, but not 
in the hole, it will see the Ge as the current material, and when in the 
hole of the detector, it will see the air as current material. You don't 
need any "or" condition in your stepping action.

Does it answer your question ?
