 Patience.
 
 Just  because  you  have  a  fish  of  each  sex  does  not  mean  they  have  to  spawn.  Give  them  more  time.  Stop  bugging  them  (it's  true,  one  of  the  best  ways  to  spawn  fish  is  to  leave  them  alone).
 
 That  said,  what  is  your  tank  setup?  Is  the  female  ready  to  spawn?

 yes...i  think  the  female  is  ready  to  spawn...she  has  quite  a  good  belly...and  she  also  shows  faint  vertical  bars...
 as  for  my  tank  setup,  its  small  tank  i  think  about  30  cm  x  15  cm  x  20  cm...have  provided  a  cut  styrofoam  cup  for  the  bubble  nest...and  i  change  25%  water  daily...also  the  water  is  conditioned  with  IAL...and  have  separated  the  male  and  female  by  a  glass  compartment...

 1.  Don't  change  the  water.
 
 2.  What's  the  temperature  in  the  tank?  December  in  Pune  may  not  be  the  best  time  to  spawn  bettas.
 
 3.  Place  the  female  in  a  glass  jar  or  something  in  the  tank  where  she  can  see  the  male.  She  will  jump  out  when  she's  ready  to  spawn.  The  tank  must  be  covered,  of  course.

 Agree  with  Rahul,even  if  you  do  get  your  fish  to  spawn,  survival  of  the  fry  will  be  difficult...  Is  the  breeding  tube  of  the  female  visible?
 Can  you  try  posting  pics  of  the  female?  If  im  not  mistaken,that  female  is  from  a  spawn  of  one  of  my  betta  pair,last  year  [Smile]

 how  old  is  the  male  ?  
 30  cm  x  15  cm  x  20  cm  tank  would  not  be  good  idea.
 Also  if  its  raining  bettas  wont  spawn.
 there  is  no  need  to  change  the  water.
 try  with  a  almond  leaf  in  the  tank.
 maintain  water  temperature  between  80  to  82  F.

 since  you  tried  putting  both  the  sexes  together  and  have  not  been  succesfull,here  is  what  you  can  do,
 seperate  the  male  and  the  female,
 give  them  live  foods  like  tubifex  worms,daphnia  mosquito  larvae  anything  live  will  do,
 don  just  put  the  live  food  in  the  tank,give  them  small  feedings  6-8  time  throughout  the  day,
 this  will  ensure  their  guts  getting  filled,
 give  them  these  live  foods  for  atleast  a  week
 if  the  bettas  are  jarred  use  an  almond  leave@1"  per  small  quart  jar,
 if  the  bettas  are  in  a  tank  ,one  leave  will  suffice  for  a  44ltr  tank,
 now  set  up  the  breeding  tank  the  natural  way,
 put  some  floating  plants  such  as  duckweed  or  riccia  in  the  tank,
 add   fine  leaved  plants  to  the  tank  such  as  hornwort  or  cabomba,  5-10  sticks  of  cabomba  will  be  enough  for  a  10g  tank,
 add  half  a  almond  leave  to  the  breeding  tank,
 sometime  during  morning  out  the  male  in  the  tank  after  half  an  hour  put  the  female  in  the  tank,
 they  will  start  flaring  a  each  other,if  everything  goes  fine  they  will  spawn  in  an  hour  or  so,
 keep  the  temp  in  the  tank  at  26-28C,
 if  they  dont  spawn  jar  the  female  and  put  it  in  the  tank  along  with  the  male,
 when  you  see  the  female  swimming  head  down  or  when  it  develops  vertical  stripes  release  it  in  the  tank,
 dont  use  any  airstone  or  sponge  filter  until  you  have  removed  the  male  from  the  tank  and  the  fry  have  become  free  swimming.,
 
 regarding  what  you  said  that  your  female  was  spawned  one  month  earlier,i  would  like  to  let  you  know  that  my  betta  female  spawned  twice  in  10  days,so  that  not  a  problem,
 and  also  dont  keep  disturbiing  the  tank
 hope  this  helps  Thumb Up  
 regards

 one  more  thing,
 if  you  are  trying  to  breed  a  older  female  to  a  younger  male  its  very  dificult,
 the  female  may  kill  the  male  so  be  careful
