So the simple solution here is that you’ve never set up a crontab file.  Create one, then run crontab <filename> to add the file.  Then, a crontab –l will display just fine.

Ramesh, try first creating a file called t.txt with one comment line "# test comment". Then run crontab t.txt to add it. Then I bet your crontab -l will work.
