Thanks Allan,
Mentioned below is my current progress.
all in /tmp/clam folder

sigtool --unpack-current=daily (Unpacked Existing CVD from /var/lib/clam)
sigtool --verify-cdiff /media/sf_works/python/clamAv/daily-23265.cdiff
daily.cvd (Verfied it using sigtool for match)
sigtool --run-cdiff /media/sf_works/python/clamAv/daily-23265.cdiff
daily.cvd (Applied using this command)

After  this process, this BUILD is my only option (sigtool --build
daily.cvd --server "" ) But I do not have any signing server to build
CDV file.

so what will happen if i copy all these contents from temp folder to
/var/lib/clam folder.. Will it use the updated DB for scanning threats
??

Regards
Venkat.S

This will give you a directory full of files which is the equivalent of the current cvd file, however you cannot then repackage and sign the resulting database directory.
