I am looking for calling import csv in JIRA automatically when there are any changes found in CSV that is already imported in JIRA.Can anyone say if this is possible?
When importing a CSV file JIRA first asks which columns in the file maps to which fields of the issue. After that it needs to know which values in a column maps to which values inside the jira. For example "Created" in the csv file may map to "Open" inside JIRA for status field. At each update new values may be added or column may change. Doing this automatically is very difficult.
You'll need to find or write a service that can run a regular import, after checking that incoming data actually needs to change.
This isn't going to be easy, unless you've got a very simple flat file format. I would be strongly tempted to run it externally too - write a script that can interrogate any issue that is going to be updated, check the "new" data, and then poke required changes in via REST instead of trying to read and scan CSV
