 I have been trying to label the version of builds which I am making. I could time stamp them but I am not able to figure out how to label the builds with that info. Or is there any other option?

Well, there are several places/ways to put the info.

One case is make project properties file with PropertyFile task, and add the build number Property to it.

If timestamp is what you need, it could be something like:
    comment="My properties">
  <entry  key="adate" type="date" value="now"/>
  <entry  key="formated.date" type="date" value="now" pattern="DDD HH:mm"/>

will produce a file my.properties with the following content:

#Thu Nov 02 23:41:47 EST 2000
adate=2000/11/02 23\:41
formated.date=028 17\:34

This task should be placed within another task, of course, which executes whenever you want to build the project.
