This is actually not an easy thing to do at all.  By default, only administrators can modify tasks. There is a tool called System Frontier (http://systemfrontier.com/scheduled-tasks) that does what you a looking for but you have to pay for it.  There are a few workarounds posted on technet social, here, that might also help but again these are just workarounds.

Short of that, I've read of modifying permissions to necessary folders and tasks, but I've only seen reports of partial success.

Glad you got it working!  Would you mind me asking which solution worked for you, so I know for the future should I ever have to do this also?

I didn't implement your solution because the issue got resolved from User's end and its all started working but I am sure your solution looks pretty close to my question. Thanks for your all help. Cheers
