Please elaborate your query?
Is your party tenant?

When he will finish the remaining part of the building?

my party is landlord
construction is completed around 1 year ago

Your party (landlord) paid some advance to complete the construction work. The work got completed by tenant. The remaining amount of payment gets adjusted to the rent. So treat the remaining amount as cost of improvement, and offer the rent amount to tax.

my query was how to calculate amount of rent? rent was not paid; aug 2019 advance received from tenant was adjusted as rent till date.

Calculate total rent liability till march 2021, as per agreed terms.
Adjust the amount of advance payment received against the rent.
Credit the rent payable by party till march, if any.
Balance amount adjust against unrealized rent.
