  Ok, I have reached to the point where the SSH tunelling works, and I am able to connect using it to PgAdmin. But I still want to know what exactly is wrong with the other setup.
  I just came across this in the postgres documentation, about starting the postmaster with an -i option, if you want your server to accept TCP/IP connections.
  I just used the -D option as specified, to start the server. Is it necessary to use the -i option so that my server can listen, or is the documentation just too old? If yes, what is the syntax for the same?

Hopefully you took no offence while I took this a sharp turn.

I agree that this would be probably a good idea to get it working.
Alternatively it might seem easier to have a temporary set up on the
local computer, if feasable.
