You had this in your previous message:
suffix "dc=your-domain, dc=com"
rootdn "cn=root, dc=your-domain, dc=com"
That's a different rootdn.

In your case, the domain is "niit.com" so instead of:
you would use:
The directory administrator DN (distinguished name) for this
database/suffix; the rootdn is "not subject to access control or
administrative limit restrictions for operations on this database".
"This option specifies a password for the DN given above that will always
work, regardless of whether an entry with the given DN exists or has a
"cn" is "common name", one of the X.500/LDAP attribute types.
