It has a pulling power issue for initial pickup for 1st and 2nd gear , and takes time to change from 2nd to 3rd gear, but after that car is fast and normal speed. Followings are replaced, turbo charger unit, common rail sensors , maf , tank unit pump and inline pump. Finally suspected that engine high pressure diesel fuel pump and to replace it.

Hello Manju and Welcome! I'm Billy and i will assist you with this. Feel free to ask, if further info is needed.
My apologies for the delay, thank you for your patience.
Before replacing the high pressure fuel pump, did you check using a scan tool, for any fault codes?
