How to train my cat to use litter (sand)

How can I train my cat to shit on the sand and get rid of his bad habits?
Hi Moiz..... Nice to hear from Pakistan! It is unusual to hear from Pakistan.
You are using sand as an area where your cat goes to the toilet.
In the west we use litter in litter trays. But the same rules apply.
Cats usually by instinct pick the best place to go to the toilet. Earth is the original toilet for the cat obviously. Sand is perfectly good.
The most obvious reason why a cat won't use the litter is that it is not clean enough and not in the right place. You might also consider changing the sand for a different type or even earth. If you can buy litter in Pakistan and can afford it you might try that. Cats have preferences (they like certain types of litter).
Is your cat a rescue cat (a cat that you found)? You might like to figure out what he used as litter before you kept him.
