    Hi Uday,

    You need to recover your database.

    1. Goto Sqlplus "/as sysdba"

    2. give command Startup mount.

    3. give command recover database.

    4. Alter database open.

    5. Start sap.

    Is your database restarted or stopped during backup?

    If yes then Follow Note 4162 - Missing "end backup"
