Thanks to all for replying CRON job issues:

Here is the following points noted from the reply mails and helped me
a lot to solve all problem.

o No blank line(s) are allowed in crontab entry.
  # to be included in front of each line if we need any blank-line(s)

o Log ie. /var/cron/log should be in system ulimit, if exceeds
  this limit, problem may occur during execution.

o Environment variables must be defined and exported for
  directory/file path when using cron for running scripts.

Thanks again.
