Many thanks to everyone for their responses.
Xie, The `attachfile’ package you suggested works great if I export lyx file to tex format and then convert the tex file to pdflatex. However, if I try converting the lyx file to pdflatex directly, it throws me an error – “pdftex error: cannot open file for embedding” . It doesn’t seem to locate the file. Any pointers on how to resolve this would be very helpful. Thank you.

I have seen facility to attach documents to PDFs through Adobe writer. Is the same possible through Lyx/Latex? Thanks, Parul
