Thanks Eugene for quick response.

I didnt understand the below:
You will need another DHCP server reachable via eth0.

Also i have another query that is it possible to run dhcp server and dhcp
client on same machine on same interface tap0?
Also do u have information that does dhcp server validate that source MAC
address of in coming dhcp solicit packet?
