select * from user_tab_privs
where grantee in ('PUBLIC', :USERNAME);

select * from user_col_privs
where grantee in ('PUBLIC', :USERNAME);

select * from user_sys_privs
where USERNAME in ('PUBLIC', :USERNAME);

There are no rows in any of the tables you listed.

Logically it should not happen, when I have granted the privileges to the user.

I got the roles the user is assigned to and thereafter I fetched the privileges attached to the roles.
