Thanks for your help.
"--exclude" option is working fine.

But as you told, how to create backup dir outside transfer directory.
I am new to rsync. But as far as i studied, backup can be taken in the 
destination dir.
So what ever directory i am giving, it is created in the original 
destination path and my backup file is
kept there. How to create backup files outside transfer area?
