I will not change Heathrow airport (Terminal-5) during my both journeys. Also my baggage will be transferred by British airline.

Moreover I checked as per exemptions part for Transit visa and I found out that I am exempted from transit visa requirement, as I am carrying EEA (Italy) valid D category visa.

I assume that you are asking for a confirmation that an EEA Category D visa can be used in place of a UK transit visa.

also I checked as per exemptions part for Transit visa i found i am exempted from transit visa requirement. as i am carrying EEA (Italy) valid D category visa.

Yes, this is the case. When they made the new transit rules in 2014 they decided that a Category D visa mitigated the risk to the extent that a UK transit visa is overkill and hence not required in most cases.

No, because you have an Italian D visa, you do not need a UK DATV. The same is true if holding an Italian residence permit. This is stated on the GOV.UK website
