I am trying to call getinfo() method  and print the output on console using multichain-node npm..

I'get following output on console

 

undefined

undefined

What could be the possible mistake?

If you set the RPC username and password correctly, the issue may be that you are trying to access the node API from a different computer. You can fix this using the rpcallowip runtime parameter:
