>>shall i do the sam every time i want to start the instance ?
Well,
Try it!.
Reboot the node and see what happens.
This is known behavior.
quoting docs
Quote:
Running Oracle Cluster Synchronization Services from a Different Oracle Home

To reconfigure Oracle Cluster Synchronization Services (CSS) to run from a different Oracle home, enter the following at the command prompt:

localconfig reset [destination_Oracle_home]

where destination_Oracle_home is required if you run this command from the Oracle home where the CSS service is currently configured.


In your case, you already manually deleted and added the new home.

If you prefer, you can automate that too.
Just fix your oratab,dbstart /dbshut and add appropriate entries in init.d scripts.
Here is a simple example.
