Are you certain you copied report.cls and not book.cls? In any case,  
around line 55 of either file, there is a line:

\ProvidesClass{report}[2004/02/16 v1.4f Standard LaTeX document class]

or in your case,

\ProvidesClass{book}[2004/02/16 v1.4f Standard LaTeX document class]

(The dates and version numbers may be different, depending on what  
you have installed.)

Change that line to something like

\ProvidesClass{cessar}[2006/09/30 v1.0 V. Sasi Kumar report document
