Hi Rahul,

If the ball is going into the net, you need to open the racket more.  By having a faster action you can also get the ball to lift more.  

Firstly try opening the face of the racket a little.  Experiment with this to get the right angles.  Of course each ball is slightly different so you need to adjust constantly.  However if you are saying most of your strokes are going into the net then focus firstly on opening the racket.
