When I'm deleting any file, for e.g., of 700 MB or 1.4 GB, the Filesystem is not showing an increment of free space of more than 48 MB!!! Why?

After you delete, are you clearing your trash or leaving it in there?

i'm clearing the trash. even then, there is no use. Plus, my harddisk is nearly full.

Don't send the files to Trash then. Either Shift+Delete them or open Nautilus preferences, goto Behavior tab and check the "Include a delete command..." option and "Delete" your files rather than Move to trash.
Also, do this:

sudo rm -rf ~/.local/share/Trash/files
