thanks Daniel and Udo, but there is no way these watchers are getting notified about the new request.

Thanks a lot Daniel and nd Udo.....It's working now

You could add a multi user picker field in your create screen. Then add a post function in the create transition and copy the values of that field into the watchers

I already have a screen in place. Do I need to modify that by adding a user picker field to add watchers.

Yes, you need to add a new customfield of that type to your existing create screen.
