Hi Bhavesh,

If the ball is long (only once bounce on your side) you should topspin it.  Use the technique we show you in our lesson on the Forehand Loop Off Backspin.  This is the stroke you need. The stroke needs to be vertical to allow for the backspin.

If the serve is short you should push the ball back.  Try to use a soft hand and just touch the ball back on to the table.  If you can get it back close to the net it is ideal.  You will need to have your bat angle very open.
