 Hi  Monotosh  Mitra,  
 
 Capacity  of  the  tank  is  more  and  placement  of  the  tank  is  inside  the  stand  which  would  not  bear  the  weight.so,Place  a  wooden  sheet  on  top  of  the  stand  and  then  place  the  tank  so  that  weight  would  evenly  spreed.

 take  off  all  those  rocks  RIGHT  NOW!!!  you  are  lucky  as  hell   Surprised   the  bottom  didn't  cracked  yet
 the  bends  at  the  welding  points  on  the  front  side  and  sagging  of  bottom  suggests  that  all  those  pipes  might  be  of  2mm  thickness.  The  fabricator  i  consulted  told  that  the  square  thin  pipes  cannot  withstand  such  weights  and  have  to  use  4mm  1.5"  -  2"  L  angle  channels.
 Btw  just  as  temporary  action!!  try  adding  supports  like  this:  (the  red  lines)
 
 
 
 the  legs  you  are  using  will  crack  the  vitrified  tiles  as  all  the  weight  is  concentrated  at  one  point.  cut  all  those  legs  and  let  all  the  weight  spread  across  the  lower  frame  and  pass  to  the  ground.  tiles  will  have  hollow  pockets  underneath  while  laying  check  for  them

 when  you  are  placing  the  plywood  over  the  gray  frame,  it  wont  touch  the  blue  ones  in  the  middle,  just  put  something  under  the  ply  to  fill  the  gap,  so  that  it  will  pass  the  weight  of  the  tank  to  the  stand.  don't  forget  that  you  are  dealing  with  a  weight  of  about  1  ton  Surprised  all  the  best
