Thanks all for the reply. Was travelling a bit, couldn't reply early.

Even though I couldn't find the exact issue, I too feel that was GRE tunneling issue.
Was able to do a successful installation using below guides

You need to figure out where the DHCP requests are getting to, and if any replies are being generated (and if they are, where they are being dropped).

Log onto the compute node and attach tcpdump to the instance's network interface (usually tapXXXXXX), and check if you can see the DHCP requests going out. Then attach tcpdump to the network interface that has the GRE tunnel (?): do you see the DHCP requests leaving the compute node? Do you see the DHCP replies coming back from the Neutron networking node? If they're not coming back, attach tcpdump on the network node to see if DHCP packets are reaching Neutron.
