    Basically, you never can install/ reinstall OS in mobile phone, while you can reset the phone (either hard/ soft reset) and the OS installs automatically with fresh one. Yes, if you detach the memory card before did the same, then you can simply insert it after resetting and you can get all information intact as it was earlier. But if you did with memory card, then it also delete all the information from your card. There is a very few chance to recover it,

    Sounds like a hypothetical question, and as such, the answer would be 'it depends'.

    If you have a specific situation with some specific device, you would be better off asking specific questions about that situation and device.

    If it is not working after hard reset, so you can carry this mobile to an authorized service center and they can help you. What symptoms are there, like restart automatically/ power button is not working.

    The question "Is it possible?" is almost meaningless. We need to know actual internal circuitry in order to guess. We also need to know who is attempting to recover any data (FBI? NSA? next-door neighbor?), as well as how long it's been since the upgrade, how much activity of all kinds have happened on the device, whether power was removed and for how long, how much budget is available for recovery attempts, and probably many other questions.

    It might be possible, and it might not. Many factors can be involved. You might as well ask us "If I flip this penny, will it be heads or tails?"

    Why are you bothering about all of these. When did reset, was the memory card / sim card detached from your phone. If yes, you can get data (if they were in the memory card like photo/ video/ other files and if contacts were on the sim card) after reset. Just insert them according to their slot and you can get contacts/ files, but  if reset has done including sim/ memory card, then there will be a very few chances to get back. However, free softwares are not working as per desire. It is better to carry the phone to an qualified service center and tell them whatever you want.

    Card is not detached at that time its in the slot all the data is erased so as you said that its very difficult to recover it after hard reset means its permanently erased

    As you mentioned card was not detached at the time of reset, the files/ contacts were completely erased and you can not get back all of these in easy way or almost the chances are very low. Try to get back with an authorized service center.

    Thanks for your reply!
    And one more question is that if they reinstall software to recover mobile then internal memory will totally wiped or not and is it safe to sell it now?

    Yes, internal memory/ phone memory is wiped at the time of reset. Please detach memory card and sim card before reset. After reset, you can insert them again at their slot.
