You shouldn't use publicly registered address space that you don't "own".  You should use the RFC1918 address space:

10.0.0.0/8
172.16.0.0/12
192.168.0.0/16

hmm..ok i will change the subnet from 11.x.x.x to 10.0.5.x/24 ?
But just out of curiosity if i may ask, whats the downside if we use a public routable I.P in our tunnel ?

From a technical standpoint, nothing.  As long as it remains in the tunnel you are fine but it is simply bad practice.  There is plenty of private address space available to use.
