I think my question is pretty clear when I try to open a new tab in my terminal(tilda) it doesn't remember the last working directory.

For example:

Current Tab:

ranveer@ranveer:/etc$

After opening new Tab:

ranveer@ranveer:~$

What I need is when I open new tab the current directory is set to last working directory /etc in above case.

I know I can use an application like tmux for the above feature but sometimes I just like to work in new tab rather than new window pane.

Well, what "terminal" are you using? You are only showing us output from your shell (most likely a bash) and bash doesn't have tabs. Gnome-Terminal as shipped with Debians has the behaviour you are looking for ... –  user1129682 Jun 15 '12 at 11:19
