I can try out your suggestion for CVSROOT .. but then my question is why does 
cvs update fail in first case and succeeds in second. (with reference to the 
steps I mentioned in my original post) ..

$ cvs -nf update neerajprojects/project1 cvs update: No CVSROOT specified!  
Please use the `-d' option cvs [update aborted]: or set the CVSROOT environment 
$ cd neerajprojects
$ cvs -nf update project1
cvs update: Updating project1
... i.e. this succeeds


The SmartCVS thing was mentioned by me to just give more info .. SmartCVS 
doesn't fail while doing the update ... and so I mentioned it in my post 
thinking it might help in diagnosing the problem. I don't see how your 
suggestion would help .. as I am not sure what to ask about SmartCVS.

Depending upon which access method you are using, prepend the access
method (":pserver:", ":ext:", ...) before your CVSROOT.

I think you should ask on a SmartCVS mailing list for this one.
