Me and my girl friend will be arriving geneva 27th Dec 9:30AM(thursday). We have a return flight on 30th Dec (sun) at 8:00 PM.

Can anyone please advice what are the best possible places to cover in 4days?

In my planning,
27th Geneva to Lucerne (night staty in lucerne)
28th Lucerne to Jungfraujoch (night sttay in interlaken)
29th interlaken sight seeing
30 interlaken to geneva (flight at 8pm)

Welcome lucky3011. You definitely need a rail pass, since you'll be making quite some long and expensive transfers. I suggest you look into the 4 day Swiss Saver Pass (which is the easiest way of traveling, since all trips by regular trains, buses and boats are for free) or the Swiss Card.

As for your itinerary: if you want to visit viewing points, you should consider either Rigi or Pilatus near Lucerne. If weater is bad, visit the town centre and the Traffic Museum. That is, if you have time left after your arrival in Lucerne. Please refer to the timetable to check such details. Your trip up to the Jungfraujoch will take at least half a day, maybe a full day if you get out along the way and enjoy the views in Wengen, Grindelwald and at Kleine Scheidegg. Your last day in Interlaken could be used for a boat trip, an easy hike, a visit to the Schilthorn; it really depends on what you're interested in.

If you like scenic train trips, consider getting back to Geneva using the Golden Pass line through Zweisimmen and Montreux.
