I tried your suggestions.
-- I can mkdir -- When I try to chown, I get the following error
chown: changing ownership of `nasir': Operation not permitted
Could you please explain me what do you mean by 'You probably need rwx
permissions in /etc/export' ? This is my /etc/export file,
Also, I have configured a separate client machine (RHEL 6.1) and configured it
as NFS server (previously my NFS server was IPA server itself) and the result
is same. All the above commands are from this client machine only.
Thanks indeed again!

permissions on /home/abc: Operation not permitted
It might be a root squash issue. My guess is that the order of
operations for creating a root directory, which is done by root, is:
1. mkdir /home/userid
2. chown uid:gid /home/userid
It sounds from the error message that the first stage happened, but
NFS is not allowing the second stage. To confirm, as a root (and
kinit admin) user on the client machine, just try these two steps in
order and see if they still fail.
chown is a different system call from mkdir, and might have
different nfs enforced permissions. You probably need rwx
permissions in /etc/export.
