It gives whatever information you store about the user in passwd or NIS map..Are you sure you have the entire name in the passwd/NIS (whichever applicable)? In the example you quoted, you have got login name as kumar...

Looks like this user does not have his full name updated..

where i can find passwd/NIS
# 4  
If the full names are stored in the 5th field of /etc/passwd you can try this:
Code:
awk -F: '$1="kumar"{print $5}' /etc/passwd

# 5  
No i am not able to see the full list in the /etc/passwd
# 6  
That why you dont see with finger. I am afraid you need to first update the user database with first and last names.
