Dear Anurag

 Please check if the ligand is there in the same binding site or elsewhere
on the surface of the protein w.r.t actual (crystal) ligand
(1) You may do an initial positioning of the docking grid by setting
'' gridcenter '' in the .gpf file to the centroid of the coordinates of
ligand atoms.
(2) You can restrict the size of the grid to encompass only the site of
