General & Family Physician 's  Response
Your BMI is 26.3. You are overweight. Your target weight is 76 kg.
There is no easy and fast shortcut for losing weight. It requires lots of efforts and patience from you. Your job profile involves you to sit at one place for a prolonged period of time, which leads to obesity and weakness of abdominal muscles leading to pot belly.
Basic things are
Taking less calories, that is eating less fats (oil, ghee, paneer. cream) and carbohydrates (wheat and rice). Do not stay hungry. Fill up your stomach with salads, vegetables, fruits, naturally available foods.
Exercise. Abdominal muscle strenthening exercises tone up your belly muscles and allows faster weight loss from stomach. Lying on your back and cycling in air is a good way of toning up your stomach.

Dear Muhammed Mohideen,
It is the professional penalty, since you have to spend many hours sitting down, it is natural that you will develop pot belly.
Basic idea for controlling obesity is, restricting your Calorie intake according to your Calorie requirement for your daily work. When the intake exceeds the work output then the excess Calorie is stored by body in the form of fat and the favorite place is the belly wall. Restrict food, rich in fat and protein and eat plenty of vegetables to take care of your hunger.
