I am not able to mount the disk. It is showing error.

Error mounting system-managed device /dev/sda3: Command-line `mount "/media/tusharmakkar08/Local"' exited with non-zero exit status 1: [mntent]: line 1 in /etc/fstab is bad
mount: can't find /media/tusharmakkar08/Local in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab

Output of

 sudo blkid 
is

/dev/sda2: UUID="FA38015738011473" TYPE="ntfs" 
/dev/sda3: LABEL="Local Disk" UUID="01CD72098BB21B70" TYPE="ntfs"

/dev/sda5: UUID="CFB1-5DDA" TYPE="vfat" 

Output of

cat /etc/fstab
is :

You can use \x20 for space.

That is hex value for ASCII (and utf-8 encoded) space.

Or you can use the octal variant \040.

So that would be (in fstab):

UUID=01CD72098BB21B70 /media/tusharmakkar08/Local\x20Disk1
# or
UUID=01CD72098BB21B70 /media/tusharmakkar08/Local\040Disk1

If you are not to familiar with ASCII fun install ascii and:

ascii     # decimal and hex view
ascii -o  # octal view

Non the less I'd also recommend, like @TNW, changing the mount point to one without space. Generally makes things easier. You can also change the label though that might affect other things if you have something configured to recognize it as it is.

You have a whitespace in your first mount point name. Best thing you can do is to rename it so it doesn't have whitespaces and change your /etc/fstab accordingly.
