do you really know what surface do you want to make? do you have a specific order of the points?
without any predefined rule there is no chance to make the definite mesh based on cloud of points.

the only thing that you can really do is to make a convex hull...

hi Dennis,

I want only the poly surface, I understand that by giving bunch of points without any ordering its difficult to create something but what if we figure out the distance of the closest point from a given point and then start creating the mesh based on there distance, will it help if the point numbering is not in order?

Convex hull will not be useful for me? but I will be interested to know about how to create it.
