I am using bitcoind. It generates the BTC addresses(not segregated). How to get segwit addresses? Do I have to change the settings in
bitcoin-cli getnewaddress -- generates address that starts with '1'

Make sure you are using Bitcoin-core v0.16
bitcoin-cli getnetworkinfo then in your bitcoin.conf add
As @Meshcolider comment if you want to get p2sh address you should set:
But I would use bech32 since bech32 produces smaller transactions than P2SH segwit transactions.
For Bitcoin-core version 0.15 send
bitcoin-cli addwitnessaddress 1BRo7qrYHMPrzdBDzfjmzteBdYAyTMXW75
to get p2sh address.
