It is not possible to split a task over different periods of time.
Example: in real world project management a task can run for 5 days, then stop 
for 10 days and then resume for another period of 5 days.
GanttProject doesn't allow to indicate multiple start/end dates for the same 
task. To achieve this a second (task) line for the same task must be created 
which is not intuitive (on the contrary....).

Any help possible on this none?

This problem can easily being bypassed by creating 2 subtasks, and the 2d task 
starts 10d after the first one.

In terms of completion calculation, the solution is not so ideal but I found it 
doable (for the few cases this occurs)

Looking at some of the comments in the link above, it seems that some of the 
users of GanttProject treat it as if they have paid for it and expect great 
things, and forget that it is, in fact, free software that someone is kindly 
letting them download.

Many thanks

I'd like something like this too. Here you can find how this feature works in 
other tools:
