How to take the backup of SPList having MMS Column? If I take the .stp file from the list settings I can not get this managed metadata column after taking the template file. Any other way I can get the backup of this SPList, either through PowerShell or through SP Object Model.

If you can access Central Administration you can backup your list in Backup and Restore - Export a site or list (Granular Backup section). Hope this will help you.
