I am facing problem in giving a visitor user permission as "Contribute" on a perticular folder inside a document library. In my scenario the user is added in the top site collection inside visitor group to have read access to all the sub sites, but for one sub site's document library I have a sub folder on which I want to give the user contribute access. I went to that particular library and then that folder selected manage permission and then given the user permission as contribute (by breaking inheritance of permission). Now when I login with the users credential on the document library folder I cannot see the "Add New Item" link, whereas I can edit and delete the previously added files. Can anyone help me in this? what step I am missing ?

Just stop inheriting permissions for that particular folder. This will enable the option to grant privileges. There you can add more users and assign them permissions.
I tested this in SharePoint 2013. I hope the same thing works if you are using SharePoint 2010. I hope it helps.
