If basicity is the number replacable of h ion present in acid then why when excessive acid is produced in our stomach we call it acidity? Why?

The basicity of acid is the number of ionizable hydrogen (H+) ions in one molecule of acid. However, the term acidity with respect to the stomach is not related to the ability of the acid to release H+ but rather the presence of excess acid in the stomach, higher than the permissible limit.
