Finally got my answer,

I had an attribute with identifier product_categories, I have just deleted that attribute and now category selection does get saved.

I don't know why magento behave like this but it worked for me

  • sure @Marius, just for my knowledge, do you idea why that attribute was causing issue? Feb 11, 2015 at 9:24

    Speculation: That should not be an attribute, in EAV. The value of product_categories is dynamically generated by code to a comma separated list of categories a product belongs to. Having that (incorrectly) as an EAV attribute most likely broke that dynamic asignment/replaced the correct values with null
