Shower drain trouble

I recently bought a new home. The master bath was renovated, however they did a shitty job of not installing the shower drain, but leaving it. Attached is picture where you can see toward the wall in the center a missing tile/space for drain which wasn't installed. Inspection report indicated that there could have been possible leak in kitchen ceiling because of this shower issue.

I'd like to know what are my options of getting it fixed . Couple of plumbers made it sound like they did incorrectly since drain is always supposed to be in center not towards the corner. How real /true is that?

Might want to post a better picture. Can’t even see where the drain might be.

Welcome to the forum, Raji.

I'm afraid I can't see the missing drain either. Do you have any better pictures?

I'm afraid I don't understand that part of your post. Maybe you could clarify that for me.

the drain can be anywhere in the shower as long as the water runs to it

It looks like you have a linear drain on the left side of the shower.
Nothing wrong with that as long as it is installed properly.

How the grate fits inside?

There was something here but is no longer available

I can't really tell anything from the description or picture. The picture is also from a realtor's website. Can you take your own picture?
