The beam should be analyzed to find out the cause of deflection, then decide on the repair technique. one solution could be increasing the size of the beam and adding extra reinforcement in order load carrying capacity of the beam, and increase flexural resistance to reduce deflection. Before application of this repair technique, the beam should be released from certain amount of loads through the provision of jacks for the secondary beams. The new cross section with the added reinforcement ratio should be analyzed for compute its load carrying capacity.
I too agree with the same
