When i resize a shape in photoshop cs6 its stroke's width remains the same size as it was in its original width. It could be desirable depending on a situation but most of the time it's not. In fact, it beats the purpose of vector: same shape/look at all sizes.

In illustrator you can expand the stroke so this problem doesn't happen.

So is there a way to make stroke's width dependent on the size of shape.

No. The vector strokes are set and will not scale when dragging a vector shape. There is no way to change this behavior in Photoshop.

The only other way as of now to simulate the behavior is to convert the shape into smart object.

As you can see here: In Photoshop, is there a way to incorporate a stroke into the shape object/layer itself?
