Check your themes and plugins. Themes can add editor styles and plugins can add styles to WP Admin. You likely have a rougue plugin doing something here, because my stock WP install does not have this issue.

Currently no plugin is activated in my setup. and I am using default theme "Twenty Twelve" with latest version.

After analysis I found bug at
html .mceContentBody {

max-width: 625px;

Hi @nishajd,

This max-width is intentionally set by the theme, this is to make the editing UI match closer to what the maximum width of the text is in the theme.

I'm closing this as wotnfix as the current behaviour is intentional, and won't be changing.

You can create a child theme of twentytwelve to add/remove/alter any of the default theme styles.
