Hi Manas,
I don't think it's possible in general, just because Property Map does not
provide any method to iterate over elements.

In the likely case that you have the list of vertices, you can try the

   ...... pm = .......
   vector_property_map<unsigned> vpm;
   BGL_FORALL_VERTICES(v, g, Graph) {
      vpm[v] = pm[v];

(the BGL_FORALL_VERTICES macro is defined in
