anujit, Shakespeare brings up the first thought I had which is why is the scott/tiger username and password being used. This is a training Id for which the password should always be changed in test and the ID should be dropped or at least locked out of production.

On a production system you should have rman or at least hot backs that could be used to restore the database to a duplicate then advanced to a point just before the objects were dropped.

Do you take exports? For test this should be good enough.

This is all providing you actually determined that you really need to restore these objects.
