Anybody there pls advise me whether the Motor image has got any problems and the temp reading shows mr as 99deg centrigrade at the max point and I understand from the motor manufactures that it can go up to 145 Deg C,Is it true

You dont really give enough information, can you attach an image. Temperature alone will not give enough info. If there is a thermal gradient it could indicate a problem. You also need to remember that the internal windings will be hotter than the outer casing and while 99 C is quite hot for a motor, without some comparative information it is very difficult to say for sure whether there is problem or not.

I have attached an image of a motor with a known bearing problem for reference, the bearing condition was confirmed with another technology.
