Can someone please tell me how do to configure ETAGS with apache so that it sends the new file only if the file is modified?

Remember, that's only a part of your cacheing system.

Please help me understand what do you mean by "part of caching system"

If that's what you're using ETAG for, it's to save your server from having to regenerate the page every request. That's exactly what the Apache documentation says the ETAG is used for: serving a file anew or not (whether you're providing a saved version from a cache file or simply telling the browser to dig into its cache for the file).
