Your cronjob appears in the global crontab(5) usually located at /etc/crontab. No files are created by Puppet below /etc/cron.d, since the default (and only) provider does not handle that.

Thanks, is there any way to create separate file under /etc/cron.d in puppet.

Yeah, you can use a regular `file` resource.
