If your Tortoise is sleeping more I don't think that is a good sign.

You should soak 30 or 40 minutes at a time.
Thank you for all the informations... Your comments really helps me a lot.
I will surely take care of him [emoji3]

I have kept him in a tray.
Temp is 30-35'c
Humidity is 36%
Lighting and heating is natural.. I am not using any extra UV light or heating equipment.
Diet: cucumber or some times tomatoes and ladyfingers. But he likes cucumber very much.
I am soaking him in water for 5-10 min every day.
I do not think a 10 minute soak is enough. I soak Oli for 20-30 minutes daily.
