Hi Biswajit Kar,

Take a look at this CRAN Task:

Also, I've been re-writing functions of package "ineq" so that they 
accept weights. I can provide those if you find them useful.
Finally, there are a bunch of packages in CRAN that provide plottings 
using weights (e.g. "weights", "Hmisc", "ENmisc", ...)
