hey, iam extremly sorry for giving u trouble,
as u said i set the environment....
this is the outcome after that
[BTIS at WORKSTATION3 ~]$ env | grep -i http_proxy
http_proxy=http://asomavarapu@actrec.gov.in:dbsa121@10.100.15.3:8080
HTTP_PROXY=http://asomavarapu@actrec.gov.in:dbsa121@10.100.15.3:8080
[BTIS at WORKSTATION3 ~]$

and this is the file of .bash_profile that i edited

# .bash_profile

# Get the aliases and functions
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
    . ~/.bashrc
fi

# User specific environment and startup programs

PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin

export PATH

export http_proxy="http://asomavarapu@actrec.gov.in:dbsa121@10.100.15.3:8080
"
export HTTP_PROXY="http://asomavarapu@actrec.gov.in:dbsa121@10.100.15.3:8080
"

then i tried the command yum check-updates    ,then this is the outcome

[BTIS at WORKSTATION3 ~]$ yum check-update
