11. I changed password in User_ table manually [password_ and passwordEncrypted] columns]

Did you change the value of "passwordEncrypted" ? It usually works when you tell liferay that the passwords are not encrypted and copy the value of password directly from db.
I'll try and check myself, could you also try to change the value of passwordModifiedDate so it matches the changed policy.

Values you enter from Control Panel is going to overwrite any settings you've specified in portal-ext.properties so if you set the password policy from the Control Panel, changing portal-ext.properties won't do it.

Are you shutting down you liferay when changing database values directly. Liferay caches data in memory so you'll need to either flush or shutdown liferay to force liferay to re-read values from the database.

Change password modified date to latest date in User_ table for the user you want to login.

passwordModifiedDate

Won't work, Tarun. Liferay caches much of the user table locally in a lucene index, including the date.

DB modifications are not always the right answer, especially in Liferay.
