I downloaded one of the tool called cvs2svn and finally did the Migration from CVS to SVN. It required python 2.4 and I installed that too. Now SVN Repo is working until one of the developer faced issue while check-out through tortoise SVN.
The Check-out happened successfully for trunk but for tags and Branches it says:
Decompression of svndiff data failed
Is it becoz of SVN and CVS File Format?
Conversion from CVS to SVn was successful.

Also, I gave a try through WebDAV on the same machine. The Both protocol works - svn:// and http://. I tried checking-out on the same linux machine and it worked for tags branches and trunk all until at last it displayed:
svn: REPORT of '/svn/sandbox/!svn/vcc/default': 200 OK (
