After little R&D, we found that this is a standard bug in MS Project 2016 and it was fixed with Patch released on February 9, 2016

February 9, 2016, update for Project 2016 (KB3114714)

After updating patch, all went fine.


Advise of the day ! (Golden Rule)

Although we have WSUS (Windows Update Servers) in our organization which regularly update the clients windows , but general patches for MS OFFICE was not selected in the checklist, & that’s the main reason why we had to face this issue. Always keep your Windows and other softwares UP TO DATE. It will keep you away from UNWANTED guests đŸ˜‰ You know what I mean đŸ™‚
