How can i get wallet recovery passphrase of wallet.dat file. So that even if the wallet got corrupted or lost i can recover entire wallet using recovery passphrase.

Also i can't find any recovery passpharse command in API call list (https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Original_Bitcoin_client/API_calls_list).

No, there is not. Bitcoin Core does not use BIP39.

    @AjitSoman You can go for regular "cloud" backups, encrypting them with a 12 word passphrase. That way you can always restore your wallet.dat to the last backed-up version and it's as secure as the encryption method you use and the passphrase. Dec 16, 2017 at 9:25
