Try this:
DT=$( date +"%Y%m%d" )

for file in DIR_A/*.*
        [ -d "$file" ] && continue
        echo mv "$file" "DIR_B/${fname%.*}${DT}.${extns}"

Remove echo if output looks good.

uuencode: DIR_B/20140206.: Unknown system error

---------- Post updated 02-07-14 at 09:50 AM ---------- Previous update was 02-06-14 at 09:41 PM ----------

I also tried below but no luck. Please help

 uuencode FOLDER/t.txt log.txt | mailx -m -s "file- hi" $EMAIL
mailx: illegal option -- m
Usage: mailx [-BDFintv~] [-s subject] [-a attachment ] [-c cc-addr] [-b bcc-addr]
             [-r from-addr] [-h hops] [-A account] [-R reply-addr] to-addr ...
       mailx [-BDeHiInNRv~] [-T name] [-A account] -f [name]
       mailx [-BDeinNRv~] [-A account] [-u user]

And sometimes using uuencode function i am only getting email body as

But no attachment

Use sendmail instead:
        echo "From: fr_addr@domain.com"
        echo "To: to_addr@domain.com"
        echo "MIME-Version: 1.0"
        echo "Subject: Your email subject here"
        echo 'Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary="-q1w2e3r4t5"'
        echo "---q1w2e3r4t5"

        echo "Content-Type: text/plain"
        echo "Content-Disposition: inline"
        echo '---q1w2e3r4t5'
        echo "Your email body here"
        echo '---q1w2e3r4t5'

        echo "Content-Type: text/plain; charset=US-ASCII; name=log.txt"
        echo "Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=log.txt"
        echo '---q1w2e3r4t5'
        cat /absolute_path/log.txt
        echo '---q1w2e3r4t5--'
} | /usr/sbin/sendmail -t

Hi Yoda,
I tried this too but i am getting only blank email attachment .My file can be of any type , i tried for .csv.
When i tried below code for txt
    echo "From: $EMAIL"
>         echo "To : $EMAIL"
>         echo "MIME-Version: 1.0"
>         echo "Subject: Error File"
>         echo 'Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary="-q1w2e3r4t5"'
>         echo "---q1w2e3r4t5"
        echo "Content-Type: text/plain; charset=US-ASCII; name=t.txt"
>         echo "Content-Type: text/plain; charset=US-ASCII; name=t.txt"
>         echo "Error File: attachment; t.txt"
>         echo '---q1w2e3r4t5'
>         cat Folder/t.txt
>         echo '---q1w2e3r4t5--'
> } | /usr/lib/sendmail -t

I am getting the attachment as ATT00001.txt and output as hello brother---q1w2e3r4t5--
