Both are same as robots txt is used to stop web crawler not to crawl particular web page or content as meta robots work is also same . The main difference is of structure how to use them both. Working of both robots.txt ant meta robots are same.

Its simple difference, In robots.txt, we ask crawlers which page you have to crawl and which one you have to exclude and make permission,changes or any access, but we don't ask crawler to not to index those excluded pages from crawling.
But if we use meta robots tag, we can ask search engine crawlers not to index this page.

Robots.txt is a text file that lists webpages which contain instructions for search engines robots. The file lists webpages that are allowed and disallowed from search engine crawling.
