but your structure becomes tetragonal
you should reset the symmetry operations to (generate) to be recalculated 
during initialisation

I am sorry having no idea about it. Simply I used optimized structure and 
increased a by a0*1.001 and decreased b & c by keeping lattice type F. Then run 
init_lapw -b.

you applied a tetragonal distortion along x
but how did you manage that you still have 48 symmetry operations ?

Betreff: [Wien] Fwd: Strain

Dear All
I got Si structure from wien2k examples and after optimization it is
SILICON
F   LATTICE,NONEQUIV.ATOMS:  1
MODE OF CALC=RELA unit=ang
 10.305626 10.305626 10.305626 90.000000 90.000000 90.000000
ATOM   1: X=0.12500000 Y=0.12500000 Z=0.12500000
          MULT= 2          ISPLIT= 2
       1: X=0.87500000 Y=0.87500000 Z=0.87500000
Si         NPT=  781  R0=0.00010000 RMT= 2.22        Z: 14.0
LOCAL ROT MATRIX:    1.0000000 0.0000000 0.0000000
                     0.0000000 1.0000000 0.0000000
                     0.0000000 0.0000000 1.0000000
  48      NUMBER OF SYMMETRY OPERATIONS

mBJLDA gives band gap of 1.19 eV (perfect).

 Now I apply strain (0.1 %) and structure is

SILICON
F   LATTICE,NONEQUIV.ATOMS:  1
MODE OF CALC=RELA unit=ang
 10.315932 10.300477 10.300477 90.000000 90.000000 90.000000
ATOM  -1: X=0.12500000 Y=0.12500000 Z=0.12500000
          MULT= 2          ISPLIT=-2
      -1: X=0.87500000 Y=0.87500000 Z=0.87500000
Si         NPT=  781  R0=0.00010000 RMT= 2.22        Z: 14.0
LOCAL ROT MATRIX:    0.0000000 0.0000000 1.0000000

                     0.0000000 1.0000000 0.0000000
  48      NUMBER OF SYMMETRY OPERATIONS
This time band structure (attached herewith) is very different and Si is metal.
Kindly guide me whether I am apply strain in right way or not? Band Structure is
