What do you mean by time? Elapsed wall-clock time or Teradata CPU time?

  Can anyone help me to know why its taking so much time.  

Looks like a ASP problem, so this is out of my scope of knowledge....

  Will it help if I use BTEQ scripts in place of Teradata SP as Teradata SP has got some performance issues specially when used with cursors in it.  

If you can replace the SP with a macro, there'll be a difference, when it's called repeatedly. Macros are generally faster than SPs, but you can put more complex code into a SP.

Regarding cursors, every DBMS has performance problems with cursors, because cursors are processed serially, whereas a DBMS is optimized for set operations.

On Teradata it's especially bad, because a SP runs on one node only using a single CPU.
