My SharePoint subsite search always go to default page(_layouts/15/osssearchresults.aspx).I have configured custom search result page in search settings.But no luck.However on the root site its going to my configured search result page.

You need to set the custom search page for the subsite. If it's not set, it will by default go to the (_layouts/15/osssearchresults.aspx) page.

To set the custom page, follow the below steps:

1) Ensure you have admin privileges.

2) Go to the Site Settings page > Click on Search Settings as below:

3) On the Search settings page, (https://sitecollection/subsite/_layouts/15/enhancedSearch.aspx?level=site), you can set the custom search page. Set you page url, click OK

4) After setting the page url, all the queries would be redirected to this page.
