Why not use an RMAN incremental backup to roll forward the standby database?

Or also use the rman "DUPLICATE FOR STANDBY" option.

The steps already exist.  In the docs:

Creating a Physical Standby Database with Recovery Manager

This appendix describes how to use Oracle Recovery Manager to create a physical standby database. This appendix contains the following topics

Hello Experts,

i am looking for another help in terms of database. we have a data guard setup and our stand by is out of sync.
we are planning to rebuild stand by.

how do i drop stand by database before rebuild  it again.

here are the steps i am following to rebuild stand by:

1. backup the primary database.
2. create stand by control file
3. copy the backup to stand by host.
4. establish the network setting between primary to stand by
5. create pfile for stand by by using primary database parameter file and make necessary changes.
6. start stand by instance in nomount state
7. restore the control file and recover the database
8. apply archive logs
9. start the standby instance in managed reveory mode


before doing this, i need to drop existing stand by. what is the best way to do it.

I'm not a Data Guard expert but would have to assume you drop a standby database the same way you drop any other:  DBCA.

I would think you ned to stop log propagation from the primary database first.

>>here are the steps i am following to rebuild stand by:

I'll have to defer to Data Guard experts on these steps.  

I would strongly encourage you to contact Oracle Support for help with this.  They can confirm the process is sound.
