Hi Anand.  The information you read is from
http://developer.pidgin.im/wiki/Using%20Finch , which actually
addresses the terminal-based IM client Finch, not Pidgin.  To move
buddies/chats into another group in Pidgin just drag and drop them.

And please refrain from asking support questions on our development
mailing list.

Thanks,
Mark
