Hi Sandhya,
What you mentioned is what my younger daughter also went through since her birth.
I was explained by the doctor that this is a normal phenomenon for newborns.. It's basically related to treat duct which may take sometime to develop fully...
All you need to do is keep wiping the eyes with luke warm water and clean cotton.. Do this specially before the baby sleeps...
Also you can gently massage the edge of the beginning of the nose, right between the eyes, it helps in the development of the tear duct...
After 2.5 months, my girl became absolutely fine...

Yes very correct preetjyot.. My doc also explained the same

The first question to answer would be is this a new occurrence ? If it has been happening since birth it could be due to the tear ducts not being well developed. Even then it is suggested to have the doctor examine the same. If it is something that is developed recently then it cannot be attributed to the tear ducts and again a pediatrician should look at it.
