Hi @avinashkrc; welcome to the Dropbox Community!

 

While emails aren't being sent for file additions (uploads) to shared folders, all the members of the shared folder will be able to track these changes through their account's events page as this is the place where all adds, edits and deletions are normally logged. 

 

If they have the desktop app running and opted into getting notifications, they might have also seen a notification about the file you uploaded there as well. 

 

I hope this clears things up and I'm always a post away if you have any more questions.
