But it returning as Null for all the fields. If I am getting using request.getParameter("name"), it's working. but using session.getAttribute("name" is not working, returing null.

The code does a session.setattribute("Name"...) but gets the value using sess.getAttribute("user"). The key used used in the set and get operation is different.
Replace sess.getAttribute("user") with sess.getAttribute("Name").

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
