A relationship that can be used for converting calculated Raman activities to Raman intensities can be found, for instance, in:
P.L. Polavaru, J. Phys. Chem. 94 (1990) 8106
V. Krishnakumar, G. Keresztury, T. Sundius, R. Ramasamy, J. Mol. Struct. 702 (2004) 9.
If Freq(Raman) is specified in the route section of Gaussian, Raman activities of normal modes and not Raman intensities are calculated. Raman intensities depend on the exciting laser wave number and on the Boltzmann population of the vibrational levels.
Hope this helps!

Yes I am a gaussian03 Rev user but Your comments a bit confusing for me as in G03 manual it is clearly mentioned that by using Freq=Raman you can "Compute Raman intensities in addition to IR intensities" so I am not understanding ur point of view.
There are some good quality of publications where they show computed raman intensities with gaussian e.g.
J. AM. CHEM. SOC. 2005, 127, 10977-10981.pdf
So I have stoped my work and first want to confirm it.
Secondly, my calculated Freq value of Raman spectrum is in good agreement to the experimental value for specific mode of vibrations after scaling. I am not comparing directlt intensity with intensity.My purpose is to show increase of intensity or activity upon intercalation of metal atom.What do you think in this regard?
I need your comments in detail especially in view of above references
