I think your input should be:

If you don't mind commas at the line ends:
awk -F"," '{for (i=1;i<=NF;i+=3) a[$i]+=$(i+2);for (i in a) printf i","a[i]",";delete a;printf "\n"}' input

@bartus11 -Thank you, comma at the end is not a problem,but could you please explain me the code , and should it be delete a[i]
awk -F"," '{for (i=1;i<=NF;i+=3) a[$i]+=$(i+2);for (i in a) printf i","a[i]",";delete a;printf "\n"}' input

But I am getting an ouput like this :

Are you sure you aren't using
print i","a[i]"

instead of
printf i","a[i]"

@bartus11: When using printf it is better to specify the printf format field:
printf "%s,%s,",i,a[i]

delete a is not standard awk. Instead one could use:
for (i in a) { printf "%s,%s,",i,a[i]; delete a[i]} printf "\n"}'
