I would like to run 2 equations (say k and epsilon) with different time steppings (eg k would have dt=.01 and epsilon would have dt= .001). Can someone please let me know how is it possible in OF?

You might want to look into multiSolver:

Note: not tested on version 2.x.x yet.

Mind you, it sounds like you are solving an fvMatrix for these two equations within the same solver loop... multiSolver wasn't intended for this, and probably is not very suitable.
