A moderator should be along to move your thread to the area for vCenter Server, the {code} area is for SDK matters.

If its VAMI(File-Based) backup . You have to do it twice. Once on PSC and next on vCSA. 
https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-vSphere/6.7/com.vmware.vcenter.install.doc/GUID-3EAED005-B0A3-40CF...

Or use any backup vendor products.

HI Ajay,

Thanks for the suggestion . in vCenter 6.5 there is no schedule backups . so is there any option to do schedule backups for the 6.5 vcenter & PSC.

scheduled backups on VAMI were introduced with 6.7 versions or later. So u can upgrade to use it.

For 6.5 versions; you can create a script or powershell to do this but will not recommend.  Ex:  https://vm.knutsson.it/2017/01/vmware-vcsa-6-5-scheduled-backup/
