This has been a very commonly reported issue with new sites getting into Googles index, I would not concern my self at this early stage of the game.

IMHO, You should be sure that you have all duplicate content possibilities covered, keep building the site, getting links, ignore G for now, and give the site time to age.

i think 8 months is the good enough age for a new site to get old and no duplicate content exists in the site, then why google crawlers are not visiting (caching) my internal page link due to this non-regular crawling - my site comes on first page of search engine results page and some time no where in the search engines just i can say that fluctuations in ranking position by which iam loosing my valuable customers.

if any body have faced the problem then let me know how to sort out this issue, your views, experiences, suggestions are most welcome

Try doing a search for a few unique phrases from your page. Try without quotes then with. See what pops up. You can use copyscape too. Besides external copies you may find the content is being indexed in duplicate internally as well.

Although obvious, check the /robots.txt file to ensure no tampering or accidental exclusion. Same with htaccess or similar if not in apache.

Check your backlinks as well (linkdomain:domain.tld in yahoo). Might spot something out of place there.

Do a site:domain.tld search in google to see if any pages are indexed at all.

If the cache dates were new ( about a week old ) it may be that the data is not yet propagated to all servers and you've just hit another datacenter with your query.

If the problem remains unresolved for like... a week, I'd double check this statement

no duplicate content

www vs non-www

/ vs /index.html vs /index.htm vs /index.php vs etc

404 reports 404 not 200, 302, 301

robots.txt behaving as intended

Other than that getting a few high trust links can speed up caching. Of course only if those links are relevant, for which you need a good site to appeal to authoritative sources. Proper layout / navigation may also be a problem. But start with the obvious instead.
