Hi Utkarsh,

the regular way is: 

  • Open Jira Administration ->  Issues
  • Click on "Issue types" in the left menu
  • On the upper right corner there is a button "Add issue type"

Do you have administrator permissions in your Jira?

I do have admin privilages but am not getting the "Add issue type" button

That's the project administration.  You need to use the JIRA administration stuff as Thomas mentioned before.
