Dear Sunder
         In my opinion the roof terrace slope has been disturbed and due to this drainage of rain water is not proper and there will be small pockets of water on roof during rains.Secondly there may be leakage on the mouth of rain water pipes, there may be cracks in the terrace top layer and joint leakage with parapet wall.
FOR TREATMENT
  hire good mason and after dismantle the top layer of brick tile, laid them again in proper slope and repair the rain water pipe mouth well.
