How u flashing this recovery...???
Use mobile uncle tool...
It needs root and then place the recovery in sdcard after renaming It to recovery.img and then open Mobil uncle tool and select install recovery from sdcard and then select the recovery file...
Wait some time and your recovery will work now...

And I want to know that on which android version u r?? Kitkat or jelly bean???

Hey Thanks for reply, i resolved that issue by trying to turn on the phone by usb power, phone boots up normally but without any signal both sims are properly inserted but no signal (may be IMEI issue) how to resolve it???. ( procedure i followed for previous attempt, i am currently on JellyBean my stock android version(people say Mi509 come with KITKAT out of box but its not in case of my phone. i followed your procedure as it is, downloaded attachment and MobileUncle apk installed that apk , opened that uncle and selected recovery update and it automatically restarted.)

thats why i was asking about android version....
bcoz all roms and recovery available for MI509 uses KITKAT kernel and you flashed it on Jellybean...
here i attach the stock recovery of jellybean....
for fixing IMEI use this link.........
This will fix it permanently...
IMEI TOOL with video tutorial....https://docs.google.com/uc?id=0B5DM6ZSz3dh-eTQzV2VWck1Kckk&export=download

Database- http://www.mediafire.com/download/no1oo8rroq4uqtr/Database.rar

use database file from second link bcoz this database is for spice mi509....
and next time dont flash rom if you have jellybean

If your device I bricked then just flash stock firmware using sp flash tool...if you don't know how to ...
Then give it to service centre but don't tell them about rooting and flashing custom rom...
Bcoz if you tell them then they will cost you money...

When flashing firmware is done then root your mobile and install the philz recovery using flashify or mobile uncle tool to install custom rom...

Thanks Saurabh1234 for your reply.
How can I use flashtool in my mobile as it is stucking in bootloader? I can access only Recovery mode ( Power + Vol. down). Is there any method to install the firmware by Recovery mode(Power + Vol. down)?
I had already tried the SP flastool to flash my mobile but the software dont access/ read my mobile.

flashtool will work on your pc and laptop...
download firmware and then install drivers given in it in your pc then open your flashtool and load bootloader...
now connect your device to pc via data cable with or without battery ...
then click on download button in flashtool and press vol down on device.
then update will start..
