Hi Ram,
there are some bugs with somehow *similar* symptoms (see ID 4911954.8, bug 4911954 - they talk about different values between v$recovery_file_dest (here the values are incorrect) and v$flash_recovery_area_usage).

I would try to backup the recovery area (rman> backup recovery area;) to check what rman is *trying* to back up.

You could also check Space Usage Figures in V$flash_recovery_area_usage Misleading When FRA Location is Changed [ID 460145.1] if you've changed the fra location.

Let us know if you find what's happening.
