The Xendesktop computers status is coming up as Not Registered in DDC.
I have checked the AD settings and password management option in provisioning server is enabled.
the vdisk is in standard mode
i am able to restart/boot the desktops from provisioning server
The farm GUID is the same
the time is same on all machines so it should not timeout
when i go the the web[age http://ddc.domain.com it shows the desktop group tries to connect and then displays a message 'unable to connect to the desktop group contact administrator

One thing that I have noticed is that I am able to ping all the servers from the virtual desktop. But the servers are unable to ping to the vdesktop. That might be the problem. I have checked DNS are machines are there. The computer accounts are there too. I readded the computer accounts from provisioning server but getting the same result.

Anything in the event logs? Worth checking the application log on both the DDC & one of the virtual desktops.

Yes. Following warning
The delivery controller failed to broker a connection for user 'administrator' to desktop group 'xen'. The delivery controller cannot find any available virtual desktops.
 
Please add more virtual desktops to the desktop group. If the problem is due to existing virtual desktops not becoming available, refer to Citrix Knowledge Base article CTX117248 for further information.

Try putting entries into the local hostname file for your domain controller and the PVS.  You might also want to try doing the same for the reference VM.
