Yes, it is now workable. I think  with more ifthen' can easily extend
it to upto 999 entries. Or can  there be more issues with that? Thanks
once again. It will be O.K. But as  TeX is supposed to be high quality
text processing tool (ofcource it demands  right kind of man power), I
would like to have following on my wish list:

Presently, it seems that dot  after Sr. No. are aligned (Sr. No. right
justified), but there appears variable  spacing between this dot' and
first character of text. May we make it fixed? Then first character of
all subsequent  lines should  come below this  first character  of Ist
line.
