 If one more floor is going to be built upon it then no big issue.

Is it the last roof slab, then apply "water proof coating" named "Damp-proof" from asian paints. then apply cement slurry, then place tiles.

A leaking roof is one of the most common problems faced by any homeowner! The most important thing here is not just to find a solution but to find a permanent fix to the problem. When I faced a similar problem, I used a waterproofing compound called Roff Hyproof. It was suggested to me by a friend since it is specially made for roof waterproofing. Not only did it stop the leakage but the fix has remained intact over the past two monsoons.
