I followed this method:
Let AB be connected to a 1 V battery.
then I distributed charge on all the capacitors, and wrote the KVL for (1) upper circuit, (2)lower circuit,
(3) and for 1,5,6 uF capacitors.
Now solving them I got the total charge to be 264/123=88/41=2.14 uC
which is the equivalent capacitance.
Are you sure about the answer?
 Niraj kumar Jha I think it would be much easier if we apply deltastar transformation.

 Aditya Agarwal I used stardelta the first time(149/79). I think the formula for resistance and capacitance is different. If you have solved using stardelta, can you please post the solution?

Here is that formula you people were looking for.
If you want to use the YDelta transformation for capacitors then just replace R by 1/C and you will get the corresponding result.
