    He has retarded to submit his parts

    He has retarded to submit his parts a couple of times.

    He has a bad habit of delaying submission his parts.

    Are the above sentences grammatically correct? They seem so to me but I am not sure.

    No, not at all. What does "parts" mean?

    Parts, here, mean something to be completed. It can be anything; a homework, a housework, etc.

    Re: He has retarded to submit his parts

    "Parts" does not have that meaning. You'll need to use whatever the relevant word is.

    He has failed to submit his [work/homework/essay/report] a couple of times.
    He has a habit of submitting his [work/homework/essay/report] late.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
