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.

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.
1. Install a new applicaiton (using apt-get or the software center)
2. Make sure the application is listed in the Unity Dash
Unity fails to list all the applications, not just the newly installed ones.
