I have noticed that when I transfer accounts through WHM then the transferred accounts are much larger in size as compare to the source server.Sometimes the size is doubled.I tried /scripts/fixquotas too but the size remained the same.Any ideas that why WHM is causing this or whta is the cause of this increase in the account size and how can I avoid it???

Go on, have a guess
It's possible that the files are not being cleaned up properly from the transfer. Check for files in:

/home/cptmp
/home/cprestore
/home/cpmove*

and delete them.

I suggest you SSH to both servers, old and new, and compare the files for one of these accounts. See if there are any zipped or other extra "transfer" files dumped by mistake/accident in the new server.
