I installed the CU updates of August 2016 in SharePoint 2013 Server.
Updates were installed successfully but the build version is not updated.
It still shows old Version. Any ideas?

build number is not supposed to be change after every cu. because every cu is not upgrading the schema of configuration database.
Here is great article which explain about build number myth.https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/stefan_gossner/2016/08/23/sharepoint-does-not-have-a-build-version-full-stop/
Download SharePoint Server CU from Microsoft together with the .cab files. Copy them on all Servers in your farm and execute the .exe.
After the Installation is finished on all Servers, start the “SharePoint Products Configuration Wizard” on every Servers. (Do this step one Server after the other!)
You should now see the the build number in SharePoint. This article about build numbers could also be of interest for you:
Just download from this site what version you need , after download run the file.
To check the version by using PowerShell cmd,
Get-SPFarm | select buildVersion
