I finally found out why the installed Applications were not showing up.
Check for Filters options while searching and select the Applications

Mine was not selected so it was listing due to filters applied.

Bug description:
  I am running 15.10 development version fully up to date, I installed it a few 
days ago and I have an issue with newly installed applications not appearing in 
the dash when I search for them, they can be started via console but the 
icons/launchers of newly installed applications will only appear in the dash 
after session is restarted.

  [Test case]
  1. Install a new applicaiton (using apt-get or the software center)
  2. Make sure the application is listed in the Unity Dash

  [Possible Regressions]
  Unity fails to list all the applications, not just the newly installed ones.
