    I placed the components on top layer and mirrored. Components have been placed in the bottom layer but some how the solder mask layer of the component pins is displaying as solder mask top.

    It should change to solder mask bottom. Let me know some remedy for this, as I am facing this problem in many instances.

    It sounds like the padstack hasn't been defined correctly. Try Tools - Padstack - Modify Design Padstack, then select one of the pads that has an issue and then click on Edit in the Options menu. This will launch Pad Designer where you can check / change the padstack defintion.

    IF its a component having through hole pads then soldermask should be define on both layers top and bottom and if its have surface pads then it should automatically flipped.
