The site collection might be locked.Open Central administration, Application Management, Site quotas and locks. Sit Lock information Make sure the site is not locked.

I checked that one, it is in unlocked state only. – Mihir Nov 27 '12 at 6:11

From Central Administration -> Application Management -> Manage Web Application, click on the specific web application and check User Permission, User Policy and Permission Policy if everything is in order, specifically check user policy, i guess something is wrong there

I checked all. Every thing is fine. – Mihir Nov 27 '12 at 5:06

Is that site referencing content from some other site where you do not have permission? You might want to check on that.

No way.. the site didn't contain any data. I just made changes regarding branding thats it. Not linked to any site – Mihir Nov 27 '12 at 7:19
What were the changes related to branding? Were any custom css or js files referenced? Is the Master Page checked in? – Vardhaman Deshpande Nov 27 '12 at 8:43
