the problem is
its not showing any empty space after the first fo:block as the font size is very small...

The fo:block object does not have a "height" property. It does, however have a "line-height" property.
So, change your code to:

<fo:block line-height="2.3cm"  font-size="7pt">
<fo:block line-height="1.3cm"  font-size="10pt">
