Note that access to the WebCrypto API is restricted to secure origins (e.g. https).

How to use this algorithm as the signature in (Razorpay )payment gateway integration?

I'm not familiar with Razorpay, but checking it quickly, I suspect what you require may be for payment verification? If so, I think you would probably need crypto.subtle.sign for an HMAC signature using SHA-256, but I've not had occasion to use that, so I can't really help.
