Recently, I brought a used classical guitar which is originally made in Japan. I put new strings and tuned but string are loosing when I play the guitar and it get off tuned within few minuted. I checked all nuts and but there is no wrong. Can you pls tell me the possible reasons for this and remedies. 

Thank you

possible reason I can see that wire length expantion due to temperature. If nuts are o.k and also depend on the brand of wires you used. genuine branded wires have somewhat tolerence against climatic temperature variations. check the tail piece and wound aroundthe nuts. that should be reasonably tight.

New strings take some time to settle.You have to re tune them few times. :)
