In my machine I have installed Ubuntu 12.04 and I have installed putty. I want to start putty from command line. When I run the program from command line and after closing the terminal, putty also gets terminated. How to avoid that ?

Try to add an "&" behind your command. So putty& will be your command, this will tell the terminal to run it in background. Next you have to type "disown" to detach the process from the terminal.
