I had problem with carburetor earlier and it was repaired and then now black smoke comes out from the exhuast at the same time the consumption of petrol increased.

Sounds like either a choke or float problem making it run too rich. Very dirty air cleaner'/air blockage can also do this.

Were the O-rings of the idle control adjustment valve replaced and was it adjusted correctly?
