I Got the Solution.

Above issue is resolved by adding ListElement and ItemElement in mapping of crawled properties box.


Did you map the crawled properties in the Search Service Application or the Site? BCS Properties can only be mapped in the SSA, even though they appear in the Site and Site Collection mapping them at that scope does not work.

I have not seen the issue with null values, I would troubleshoot the RootFinder for the entity.
