Wordpress generates own links for posts and pages as well default.
We don't need to generate links for categories as i never used categories links on website
Can we stop generating links on wordpress admin default?
if not, any plugin will do this? Or we have to use robot.txt to stop crawling by bots.
coz Google craws all categories links and showing as site links on serps (I don't want bots to crawl my categories)

    Yes, you can stopping bots crawl through robot.txt. Stopping the link hope not will be impact for your another page.

    You can also add HTML on the pages you want to disallow for indexing:
    <meta name="robots" content="noindex" />

    You can also stop bots from indexing the category pages via Yoast Seo plugin, (second tab, in the block where you type your title and description)
