I have one doubt after giving zakah. Last year I came to know that the person whom I gave zakah was not eligible for receiving the zakah. Should I have to pay zakah again?

If you give him zakah considering him eligible to receive zakah then your zakah was paid. It is not necessary to pay it again.
