Apache ANT execution error - Problem: failed to create task or type if

Hi,
I am new to ANT and I am facing a few issues when executing a build.xml file. I request your help in resolving this issue.

I have set the environment variables - ANT_HOME, JAVA_HOME, PATH, ANT_ARGS, ANT_OPTS.

When I execute the build.xml file, below is the output in the console.

******************************************************************************************
Buildfile: C:\projects\ADAS-INTRAV25A\implementation\build_config\build.xml
[taskdef] Could not load definitions from resource net/sf/antcontrib/antcontrib.properties. It could not be found.
[get] Getting: <HTTP URL>:8080/build.xml
[get] To: C:\Documents and Settings\raora\.ant\build.xml
[get] Not modified - so not downloaded
[loadfile] C:\BEA1034\oepe_11gR1PS3\plugins\org.apache.ant_1.7.1.v20100518-1145\etc\tiaa.version.txt doesn't exist

BUILD FAILED
C:\projects\ADAS-INTRAV25A\implementation\build_config\build.xml:5: The following error occurred while executing this line:
C:\Documents and Settings\raora\.ant\build.xml:10: Problem: failed to create task or type if
Cause: The name is undefined.
Action: Check the spelling.
Action: Check that any custom tasks/types have been declared.
Action: Check that any <presetdef>/<macrodef> declarations have taken place.

*****************************************************************************

When I execute the build file "C:\projects\ADAS-INTRAV25A\implementation\build_config\build.xml", it has a logic to import another build file: "C:\Documents and Settings\raora\.ant\build.xml". I personally don't know the reason behind this as it is an existing code base.

I read in multiple posts online which suggested downloading the antcontrib.jar file and placing it in the ANT lib folder. I verified it and it is already present. So I am not sure how to proceed here. Below is the content of C:\projects\ADAS-INTRAV25A\implementation\build_config\build.xml

Please let me know if you need more details.
