There are two methods for the purpose -
1. By using physical buttons
Well, Xiaomi has decided to place volume rockers and the power button on the same side which creates a bit of problem to take a screen shot. You may need to use two hands, if you are not expert enough.

1. Press and hold Power and Volume Up buttons simultaneously. Make sure you are on the same page of which you intend to take a screen shot.
2. Once you hear the flash and clicking sound, release the buttons. Your screen shot has been taken.


2. Using Notification bar
This is probably easier than the first method.

1. Make sure you are on the page you wish to take the screen shot of.
2. Scroll down the notification bar and locate the Screenshot option.
3. Tap on Screen shot.

Done!

The captured screen shot will be saved in Gallery->Screen shots or DCIM-> Screen shots folder.
