Have you tried swissparam.ch server (charmm ff) or vienna.ptm.univie.ac.at
server ( gromos ffg45a3, ffg45a7 and ffg54a8 ff) for beta alanine

There are no official CHARMM parameters for beta-alanine. Search the
literature to see if someone has derived something suitable.

2] How can i find the required molecule in the .rtp file..?? since its full

Refer to the original CHARMM residue topology files (.rtf), available from
the MacKerell lab webpage. These contain full molecule names and structural
