Have you looked her over for fleas? Check the back of her neck, under her armpits and near her rear end.
Regular bathing does not kill fleas, you will need a medicated shampoo to kill them if she is infested.

@pennypup i checked her for tick and fleas , she doesn't have it and the itching is not continuous its an on and off process. the itching just started like 2 days back now .

Did you bathe her recently since feeding the home cooked diet?

Bathing can dry out a dogs skin so you must use a gentle shampoo with oatmeal if possible. I only bathe my dog 3 times a year to keep his skin from getting dried out.

It could be causing her to itch.

well yes i will go for an oatmeal shampoo ,but bathing that i cant avoid , she's a long coat and the climate over here is also hot so atleast have to bathe her once in a month , i'll try getting an oatmeal shampoo though.
