Dear Purvi
              First of all you should investigate the leakage point and cause of leakage so that permanent solution of the problem can be done. I am in view that there is any sewer line near the basement and may be toilet in the basement area or water is standing in street with your house during rainy season which percolate with wall or over flow of sewer line manhole or leakage in sewer line joint or manhole side walls under pressure during rainy season. So find out the leakage cause than do remedy accordingly.
             Take help from any local engineer who will see the defect at site personally and give solution of the problem.

Post subject: You solution - RCC Layer

You must try to figure it out by yourself. The reason of leakage may be because of poor RCC in the roof. I recommend, go for doubling the RCC layer. Or you can apply Dr. Fixit chemical also in the mixture. I hope my answer helped you a little.

Dear Parth
        If you have not done cement plaster on both side of wall than do it. If  cement plaster is already done than check that plaster particularly out side and I am in view that plaster have either cracked or damage. Do the cement coarse sand plaster in 1;3 ratio and finish it with cement shullary rendering.
2. Make plinth protection with walls so that rain water does not percolate through earth.
