    Hi @sonal khatri, You can use the ServerRelativeUrl field of response to obtain file contents by calling following rest api

    GET http://mysite.sharepoint.com/<site_name>/_api/web/getfilebyserverrelativeurl('<url>)/$value?binaryStringResponseBody=true
    
    
    

    Here is the similar issue for reference https://sharepoint.stackexchange.com/questions/186348/how-to-point-to-get-the-file-contents-or-file-from-sharepoint-changes-api-call
