Error in running real.exe for simulating dust emissions


Hello Sir/Madam,
I have successfully completed the run for WPS. But, when I gave run for real.exe to simulate dust emissions over the selected domain, I got the following error:
taskid: 0 hostname: localhost.localdomain
module_io_quilt_old.F 2931 T
------ ERROR while reading namelist chem ------
-------------- FATAL CALLED ---------------
ERRORS while reading one or more namelists from namelist.input.
I have gone through the tutorial exercise 1 for dust simulation given in the officilal webpage of WRF-Chem (Tutorial Exercises For WRF-Chem Version 4.0). By following the instructions given on that page, I have given a 6-hour sample run (06 to 12 hrs) for the selected domain over the Indian region to simulate only dust emissions on May 2, 2018. For this, I have slightly modified the namelist files according to my study region and period. For your convenience, I am attaching the figure of the domain (in pdf), the namelist.wps file, the namelist.input file, and the rsl.error file. I am guessing by looking at the error that maybe something is wrong in the 'chem' section of my namelist.input file. Please take a look at these and let me know why the error occurred and how to resolve it. I am very new to this model, and any help on this will be very much appreciated.
Thanks and regards,
