Look in your yum.conf file, do you have by any chance set the keepcache variable to 0? If so, then your packages will be deleted from cache after successful installation. If you want to keep the packages set that variable to 1.
The packages are normally saved to /var/yum/cache in subdirectories that reflect your configured repositories, that is, the name of the subdirectory will be the name you've given to the repository in your .repo files.
as i said earlier i knew the method to sort the problem but i can't edit the file without "root" permission....please elaborate how to edit such protected files.....
Where did you say that? Nothing found about that problem in your original post. As a regular user you don't have permissions to edit those files, so you either ask your admin to grant you permissions (with sudo for example) or you ask him to make the change. Security exists for a reason.
