My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit and I am a member of a google group called DCHarinaam.  I use a gmail too to login into my google account.  
I am not sure why, now the button to post a new topic is no longer available.  Does this mean I am banned or it is no longer available to anyone?  Thank u for your advice.

Click "Create a New Group" and create a new group unless instructed other wise.  I came across the same situation the other day.  Google has apparently wiped old groups.

Hi jegajothy,

If you were banned, you wouldn't be able to sign in, so you're not banned. It's possible that your posting permission was changed to "Disallow posting":

member posting permission
That's unlikely, but it's worthwhile sending an email to the group owner to ask.

It's possible that the group owner decided to disallow posting to the group on the web and/or disallow posting to a topic after X days without a new post:

group disallow posting
I would also ask the group owner about that in an email. Whatever the issue is, the group owner should be able to explain it. The general format for the email of a Google Group owner is:

GroupName+owners@googlegroups.com

So for your group, it would be:

DCHarinaam+owners@googlegroups.com

Oops...UPDATE: After writing all that, I just looked at your JPG (should have done that first). I think the problem is that you have to click into the group first. It is showing three groups for you. Click the DCHarinaam one and you should see the NEW TOPIC button. Regards, Joe

In other words, the JPG you posted shows that you're on the "My Groups" screen, which displays these buttons:

My Groups
When you click into a group, you get these buttons:
