If we given line space \\[1pt] in the particular row which takes extra more space using "tabu"

We know that tabu package non maintained, I just check whether is there any other option to controlling more vertical space when I given "\\[1pt]"

Note: tabulinesep is one of solution but it takes extra space for all the rows. enter image description here

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tabu}

\begin{document}

    tabu package is not advisable to use... – MadyYuvi Mar 5 at 7:03
  • In your current example, you don't even use the flexible width columns from tabu. So why not go for a simple tabular instead and use the horizontal lines from booktabs? – leandriis Mar 5 at 8:08

    I get no additional space with your example in a current tex system. – Ulrike Fischer Mar 5 at 8:12

To long for comment ...

After removing all unnecessary curly braces your MWE gives:

As mentioned in above comments, it is not advisable to use tabu. It is buggy and not maintained. After last revision of array package, on which it is heavily dependent, it has additional problems. Rather use standard tabular or other table environments.

Edit: The same result is obtained by use of the standard tabular environment:

  • After removing "{" and "}" before and after \begin{tabu} and \end{tabu}, still the same space retained as per attachment. Is any other modification required? – Rajesh N Mar 5 at 9:25
