 Can anyone tell me how does subversion store the binary files in repository?
 Does it store the complete binary file each time it is committed or it
 stores latest version and apply backward delta to reach any older revision,
 as is the case with text files.

It does reverse-deltas, as you describe.

(Did you download any of the developer documentation and read it?
This is described there... We're generally happy to answer questions
on this list, of course, but you can save a hundred people 10 seconds
each by reading up a bit first :-). I recommend starting with
http://subversion.tigris.org/files/documents/15/17/svn-design.html, if
you're curious about how Subversion works internally).

Best,
