Vitamin B12 and red blood cell count
I have recently ordered a blood test in which there is a abnormality I have found. My vitamin B12 level is 174pg/ml, which is lower than normal where as My red blood cell count is 5.68 * 10^6 /ul,which is higher than normal. From what I have read, low level of B12 should indicate low rbc. My question is why this abnormality? Should I go for more through testing? I can show my blood report if it helps further.

This could be due to lab tests accuracy problem. Repeat the blood reports from a good lab like SRL or Metropolis and then consult a doctor.
