 Hi  Diwakar,  
            Really  cant  make  out  what  you  are  experiencing,  is  the  white  stuff  hard  or  soft,  is  it  peeling  from  edges  of  the  silicon..?
 an  image  would  help  to  get  the  idea..
 One  thing  is  the  silicon  becomes  white  once  the  tank  is  filled  with  water,  especially  the  part  which  is  exposed  to  the  water.  and  excessive  silicon  will  start  to  peel  off  as  the  time  goes  by..

 That  has  nothing  to  do  with  the  silicone,  something  is  off  in  your  water  parameters  that  is  promoting  growth  of  bacteria  or  fungus  colonies.  The  Silicone  provides  a  perfect  place  for  them  to  attach  and  grow.  It  looks  messy,  but  otherwise  harm  less.  It  will  go  away  after  a  few  large  water  changes
