Hi, Shameem - First note down any Wireless Network Passwords and DSN Settings and the:

1. Launch Settings and go to General
2. Scroll to and tap Reset > and then tap Reset Network Settings
3. Go to Settings again and check if the "Personal Hotspot missing" be not fixed.
1. Launch Settings and head to General > to Cellular (or Network)
2. Scroll to Personal Hotspot (Set Up Personal Hotspot)
3. Do try and retry reactivating it there and try checking it it is fixed again.

Sorry for the delayed reply - I have sadly missed on checking my emails. Look for and remove the app called ONAVO if you have it installed by any chance.

Also try:

1) Setting > General > Networks > if u seen hotspot option turn it on (if not)
2) Setting > General > Network > Cellular data network > (scroldown) Internet tethering  
   > enter  APN (if this does not work)
3) Setting > General > Network > Cellular data network>(scroldown)internet tethering > Reset Settings.(then enter APN )

If problem still persist, then try and Hard reset the iPad and retry the above.
