I am new to Netapp and storage technologies.
I have received Netapp FAS 3220 single controller and DS4243. I have done cabling and attached cabling diagram. Please let me know is that correct cabling.

That's perfect man , Cool that you have closed the SAS loop as well Your cabling right and is as per the Netapp Best practices
In future if you expand your environment and have doubts regarding cabling u can always run NETAPP CONFIG ADVISOR ( Can be installed on Windows Machine ) which checks the hardware status as well as the cabling in your environment.
Config Advisor can be downloaded from mysupport.netapp.com --> Tools --> Utility Toolchest

The key rule to remember is "Circle to Square". All cables should go from a Circle port to a square port.
Top Controller (A) Circle port connects to Shelf 1 Top (A) module Square port
Bottom Controller (B) Circle port connects to Shelf 1 Bottom (B) Square port
Shelf 1 Top (A) module circle port connects to Bottom Controller (B) Square port
Shelf 1 Bottom (B) module circle port connects to Top Controller (A) Square port
As i didn't notice if it is circle or square port Can you cross check based on if every CIRCLE TO SQUARE ?

Your cabling is good and also good to know config advisor showing no errors . Please do remember as you have only one controller your setup will be a single point of failure ( As it is a standalone controller ) myself representing NetApp highly recommend using HA-Pair.
