I checked to find out the cause of the problem, ppp is disconnecting properly and the user session is also closed smoothely.
But when a report query is run on the table containing 32500 records,
the memory shoots up from 50 MB to 500 MB(Total memory is 512 MB RAM).
After that the memory usage never comes down .When some 4 or 5 user 
connects, the remaining memory is utilised in a very little way, and finally the 6th or 7th user is denied with database access.The server now becomes slow. 

Will running vacuum help to solve the problem?

The total database dump is 50 MB and the /var/lib/pgsql/data contains
700 MB of data.

 Which all paramters are required to be increased in postgresq.conf.
