If a candidate is asked during an interview that 'what is their expectation (in terms of salary)?' and that person doesn't want to say anything because he knows if he gives a number he may get disqualified as well then what that candidate can say?

1) You can provide me as much salary as you think is appropriate for me considering my profile and post.

2) You can provide me salary as per the company's norms.

3) As per the company's norms.

I don't have any figure in mind(for the salary). I am open to any offer from your company or

I leave it to your company to make an offer.

... then what that candidate can say?
Please revise this. Use the correct syntax for questions.

Tufguy, I'm not going to answer any more of your questions if they contain basic errors of a kind that we have repeatedly helped you with.

Tufguy, I notice that you are consistently more careful in your use of English when you post questions to WR forums than you are here.

Please show us the same respect or you may be placed in moderation again.

In addition, you have been told countless times to stop using "that [noun]" when you could/should use a personal pronoun.

In other words, you should usually write he or she,​ not "that person".

There are two ways of writing your question and you didn't use either of them. Here they are:

1. If a candidate is asked, during an interview, "What is your expectation in terms of salary?", and he doesn't want to answer, what can he say?
2. If a candidate is asked, during an interview, what his expectation in terms of salary is, and he doesn't want to answer, what can he say?

Look carefully at the word order, the punctuation, and the difference between the direct question and the indirect question.

And note that questions never look like this: If you are asked that what do you want....

Is "provide salary" wrong?

It's the best option.
