Meena,
There are a couple of possible factors:

1) I am using FOP-0.18.1, because it does what I need and I had problems
with later versions.  The TOC fo tagging works the same on Fop-0.19.0 (I've
tried it).

There have been a number of problems reported with leaders in FOP-0.20,
which may be your problem; perhaps try your fo tagging on an earlier
release?  The effect that you are ssing seems to be the same as reported
for bug 4839 http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=fop-dev&m=100566225728208&w=2

2) You seem to be creating a full-page-width TOC, so the
leader-length.maximum="10cm" will limit the maximum length of the leader.

Changing your tagging to remove the leader-length.maximum created the
following (on FOP-0.18.1 and FOP-0.19.0):

Hi Ian,
I do have only a two-cell table, with the first cell to carry the heading
with the leader dots and the second cell with the page number. My code is
as
follows. But still i'm not getting the leader dots as required
<fo:table space-before.optimum="18pt">
<fo:table-column column-width="6.5in" />
<fo:table-column column-width="0.4in"/>
<fo:table-body font-family="sans-serif">
<fo:table-row font-weight="normal" font-size="9pt" line-height="12pt"
                 space-before.optimum="3pt" space-after.optimum="3pt">
     <fo:table-cell>
       <fo:block text-align="start"
                 start-indent="{1.3+count(ancestor-or-self::chapter)
*0.2}in"
                 keep-together.within-line="always">
             <fo:basic-link internal-destination="{generate-id(.)}" >
              <!-- Will call someother template to generate the
page-numbers -->
             </fo:basic-link>
             <fo:leader text-align="justify"
                   leader-pattern="dots"
                   leader-pattern-width="5pt"
                   leader-alignment="reference-area"
                   leader-length.maximum="10cm"/>
       </fo:block>
      </fo:table-cell>
</fo:table-row>
</fo:table-body>
</fo:table>


I get an output as follows

          HEADER-----------------------------          1
             Chapter1----------------                             2
                 Section1-----------                                  3
                 Section2-----------                                  4

I'm still not able to solve this problem.
Please reply with an appropriate solution
