Sounds like your alternator is not working. You can remove the alternator from the vehicle and take it to your local auto parts store to have it tested for free.

I bought the Tata Tiago 1 year before and now it gives the problem of faster battery discharge than any other car such as Tata Nano.

Their might some issue in the battery of your Tiago, and there may be many reasons behind this problem that you are facing like a dead battery, old battery, or bad alternator etc. If the charging system of your Tata Tiago isn't working properly, the car battery can drain even while you're driving.

A car alternator recharges the battery and powers certain electrical systems, so if the alternator has a bad diode, the battery will drain fast. Also, if the battery is old, it might not hold a full charge and drain fast. I advise you to have your car battery checked from your local Tata Motor service center or from some skilled mechanic for proper solution.

Can the car alarm kill your battery but you can start the car but after you turn it off battey died again

sure, if you let the alarm drain the battery, this can destroy any stock battery.
The car batteries are not like golf carts and are not deep discharge rated. (so can be damaged)
so charge the battery, if it wont hold a charge, it is bad.
if it discharges silently, and darkly parked , that is phantom discharge
if is discharges , driving that is a engine charge system failure.
parked over night discharging is phantom discharging.
if the alarm goes off and stays in alarm , then dont use, it.
if the battery is happy with the alarm defeated then the Alarm is bad.

The battery measure 12.6vdc charged,(rested) "voltmeter"
and running measures, 13.3 to 15vdc at idle.

this one tool can solve this problem

Why does my 96 Cadillac Eldorado battery keep discharging?

First step have the battery tested, a bad cell can cause a internal drain and kill the battery, if the batt is ok then check for interior lights like visors that stay on or interior light that come on by themselves at night due to defective door switches.
