Why don't you ask the person you got it from?

He is not to my reach now.
But, since i need to assemble the components in its PCB now,
i though i should know how the circuit really works, for which i posted the doubts i got from it.
one was built earlier and was running.

Neil Kurzman said:

So it is a constant current source with less than 30mv ripple.


Neil Kurzman said:

Then it regulates current and voltage. It would only work with a constant load. Or you you are not sure?

the load is constant.
the current is being set according to the load using potentiometer R17 connected to LM358 i/p.

recalling the details,

The circuit is designed for plating purpose, for which the ripple voltage must be less then 30mV. So that plating is not grainy. The plating time can be varied using a timer that cuts the i/p of regulator when set time elapses.

This circuit will never work!

iam interested in knowing the reasons.
