Where is your aquarium? If fans are not reducing temperature, it means less evaporation.

Yes, in NCR, its all like that.
Try to shift aquarium to a place to avoid direct light and near to AC or desert cooler in room. Anyway, nothing much bothers hard fishes upto temp of 35 centigrade but plants growth is slower. Fishes tend to have higher body temp and need more food thus making more nitrogen, so need more frequent water changes (double than usual) and increase filtration. Also, if using lights, try to avoid heat from light by reducing their on time.
Ideal option buy a chiller costing above rs 10,000.

Could build a waterfall with a fan on it. And could turn the waterfall into an algae scrubber too.
