    I want to pass some 9A of current through a berg connector. The maximum current which can be passed per pin is 3A as per the manufacturer. I know if i give 9A through it, the connector will burn.

    So want to know if i short three pins of both male and female, will it can able to carry 9A of current or will it burn?

    Yes, you can parallel the pins to increase current carrying capability. I suggest you use 4 pins or more. Using 3 pins will drive each pin to the limit and slight differences in contact resistance will unevenly distribute the current, overloading at least one pin.
