Hello @Megha P 

Have you run Integrity Checker?

This error message appears to be truncated before we can see exactly what the cause is.  I would be interested to see if you can recreate this problem, and then immediately investigate in the $JIRAHOME/log/atlassian-jira.log file.  I would expect that you will see a more comprehensive stack trace that should tell us more about why this workflow is not being saved.

I came across a similar support case that threw a similar error. In that other case, they were using a Microsoft SQL database for the Jira database, and it appears that there was a limitation in regards to max size of a text field.  We have a related KB for that situation for Confluence Server over in Unable to upgrade plugins due to Length of LOB data in SQL server.  I'm not sure if that specific problem affects you here, but this kind of error feels like some kind of database error or limitation.  Perhaps a more complete stack trace can give us more clues about this problem.
