Dear Tirthankar,

I take the following results for example.

webuse invest2,clear
tsset company time

. nwest reg invest stock, lag(1) force

Regression with Newey-West standard errors          Number of obs  =       100
maximum lag : 1                                     F(  1,    98)  =    134.30
Prob > F       =    0.0000

I am unable to reproduce your problem. Note that -nwest- is
user-contributed (STB); James Hardin wrote it.

newey usr idle, lag(3)
nwest reg usr idle, lag(3)

Maybe you can provide a minimal reproducible example?
