Hi Mahendra,
If you got a new residue, the command is right.  It is only an issue of what is displayed.  Just redraw the ribbon (menu: Actions... Ribbon... show, or command: ribbon), or instead of ribbon, show all atoms (for example, menu: Preset... Interactive 2 (all atoms)).

Here is the full explanation of the command, in case you wanted to see all the options:
