Can anyone provide manuals related to ISPF tables.
I tried using 3.16 option, with that we can only add rows to table. Is there any option in ISPF facility to do this?

I do not believe there is an ISPF facility to add a column to a table.

I suggest:
1. make a copy of the PDS member
2. open the existing table
3. traverse the table and save each row / variable to a rexx stem variable.
4. delete the old table
5. create a new table that includes the new column.
6. traverse the rexx stem and add rows to the new ISPF table.

I am confident that this is the case. You can, of course, add the new variables as extension variables to each row (my shop has tools that create tables with no regular variables, only extension variables) but in the great majority of cases this is more trouble than it is worth; use Sr. Vera's method.
