My RR has a problem with gear selector as the gear rod can be moved from parking to drive and to reverse but the car's actual gear is not moving. I wonder the might be the problem is or is it a common problem to deal with. May I know the reason for this problem and also Solutions

These cars use an electrical system to shift the gears, check the fuses and electrical system.

The gear change is accomplished using a small electric motor in a case bolted to the side of the transmission. The output of this case has a "rod" aka linkage that connects to the actual shift pawl of the gearbox.
The gear selector at the steering column is just a wiper switch with multiple contacts.
There is a "cut out" relay that protects the system.
Look in your handbook for this "cutout' (circuit breaker)

Have someone cycle through the gear changes while you peak under the car with a flash light (put your head below the b pillar) and see if the motor that takes the signal from the stalk and mechanically changes gears is moving.

Let us know what you find out.
