Hi Phil, Fairbairns, Manoj and others,

Sorry for not being specific. It is out of  just ignorance. i did not 
know that command in  TeX is different from that in LaTeX.
I use LaTeX

Here is part of the code.

%-------------------- Draft mode 
\setlength{\hfuzz}{20pt} % Don't bother to report over-full boxes if 
over-edge is < 2pt
\setlength{\emergencystretch}{30pt} %

%--------------------- Packages 

\renewcommand{\cftchapfont}{  % Numbers in the braces adjusted to get 
aestetic quality
\fontsize{13}{13}\usefont{OT1}{phv}{bc}{n}\selectfont }


\pagestyle{fancy} \fancyhead{} \fancyhead[RO]{\slshape
\nouppercase \rightmark}
 \fancyhead[LE]{\slshape \nouppercase \leftmark}

\pagenumbering{roman} \setcounter{page}{1}


\pagenumbering{arabic} \setcounter{page}{1}

I tried in between to work around, unfortunately I could not devote much 
time on that. If any of you can tell me where I am going wrong, helps a lot.

Thank you all once again,
