Hi Mahesh,

This topic is being discussed very often. I've been discussing the same issue some time ago in this thread:

https://supportforums.cisco.com/message/3159168#3159168

(look for the "What is the logic behind sending an EIGRP summary route with a NULL0 value." question)

Best regards,

Peter
