The other possibility is that the k-mesh that you used during the SCF 
calculation is not dense enough

to catch the valence band maximum (VBM), which means that :FER in case.scf is 
below the real value of the VBM.

This may be particularly the case if the VBM is not at a high-symmetry k-point 
and/or you used a shifted k-mesh.

Then, for band plotting you caught the VBM such that Ef=0 is below the VBM on 
the plot.

Do you have the same problem with GGA calculation?

I am Sorry, I used "-hf" there. But I forgot to write it here. Also I put 
correct :FER value in case.insp

Dear Users,
Generally when we plot bandstructure in WIEN2k, it shows fermi level (Ef = 0) 
just above the valance band. But when i am plotting it for my compound then 
fermi level is crossing the valance band. Can you please explain the problem 
and suggest a solution?
