I  have installed the .netframework 4.5.2.  But when I execute the following script to verify the .net framework, it is showing the verion 4.0. Why it is not showing 4.5 ?

Script:
gci 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP' |
sort pschildname -des                                  |
select -fi 1 -exp pschildname

Output: V4.0

When you manually check the registry, what does it say?

There should be two entries, one for 4.0 and one for 4.5.  4.5 is an in place update, but it still uses the core 4.0 framework.  As long as the registry says there's an entry for 4.5, you should be fine.

In the registry I can see only
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\.NETFramework\v4.0.30319

Look inside that key.  There should be some indicators.

You have to look at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v4 inside either the Client or Full key (which will depend on what is installed on the machine), and then look at the version entry/property.
For example:
(Get-ItemProperty "HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v4\Client" -Name Version).Version
