Geetika,

Pipal is Ficus religiosa ?

On our side we have two types, a large leaf and a small leaf. The large leaf needs to be grown to 76 cm [ 30" ] and a trunk around 12.5 cm [ 5 inches ], to get what you are looking for.
The small leaf can be shorter.

Apologies, I have no experience with the Mulberry [ Morus ?]
Later.

Dense Branches

The general rule is to keep pruning and pinching to get a dense branch structure. Also keep the trees in full sun. Please post pictures of your trees before we can give more help.

At one and two years old I'd say you're probably a long way from worrying about anything like a dense branch structure...

Hi,
  It means I have to wait for some more time and let my trees grow as it is. Posting pictures of my trees.

Russell is right. Wire the trunks to get some gentle curves in them. Put your trees in the ground and feed them heavily for a couple of years. Then we can talk about branches. Meanwhile try to find something more developed to work on.
