These are conditionals.
The proper way to make the first conditional is
If today is Sunday, Vinoth will not wake up early.
The proper way to make the second conditional is
If today were Sunday, Vinoth would not wake up early.
This is an interesting example, because I'm going to go out on a limb and say that you probably know whether or not today is Sunday when you say this. If today is not Sunday, then it is perfectly normal to use the second conditional (since the "if" condition can't possibly be true).
If today is Sunday, then it would be more usual to not use a conditional at all:
Today is Sunday, so Vinoth will not wake up early.
You might put it in first conditional for ironic or humorous effect, though, I suppose.
