Your sample output doesn't match your sample data.
awk -F, '
NR <= 5         {SUF1 = SUF1 DL $1
                 SUF2 = SUF2 DL $2
                 DL = FS
NR == 6         {printf "%s,%s",   $0, SUF1
                {printf "%s,%s\n", $0, SUF2
' file

Columns to Rows

Hello RudiC Sorry somehow it got missed. This is how the output should look like. the values of 1st,2nd,3rd,4th,5th rows repeats for every line. 1,1,10/12,2019,10,12,2018,xxxy .Thank you in advance and I have to do this logic for several files in the same directory

Don't modify proven scripts without knowing exactly what you are doing. Here: Don't collapse a multiline script into a one liner without the necessary statement terminators, ; . Did you test the unmodified script? To what avail?
