Not receiving push message while in Background/App Close

I am using BIS push.

I receive push on my device while in foreground.  

But I dont receive any push on my device while in background/app close.  
 My client side code

var port = 21000;
var serverURL = "http://pushapi.na.blackberry.com";
var appID = "XXX-617k3e20yRDmXXXf316r70M4cc13202kXXXX";
var max = 100;
var wakeUpPage = "index.html";


I call listenToPush() in the init of my startup page for foreground app which is also index.html


function listenToPush() {
    try {
        var ops = {port : port, appId : appID, serverUrl : serverURL, wakeUpPage : wakeUpPage, maxQueueCap : max};
        blackberry.push.openBISPushListener(ops, onData, onRegister, onSimChange);
    } catch (e) {
        alert("Error starting BISPushListener: "+e);

function onData(data) {
    try {
        // Some code
        return 0; //indicate acceptance of payload for reliable push
    } catch (e) {
        alert("Error on receive BISPushListener: "+e);

function onRegister(status) {
    if (status == 0) {
    } else if (status == 1) {
        alert("network error");
    } else if (status == 2) {
        alert("rejected by server");
    } else if (status == 3) {
        alert("invalid parameters");
    } else if (status == -1) {
        alert("general error");
    } else {
        alert("unknown status");

function onSimChange() {
    // Some code
