Long press (press and hold) anywhere on screen. Should see "action" or shortcuts menu. Find the one for App drawer. Tap it, then drag to where you want it.

Go to the bottom panel of your device. The one that holds the apps that remain in your screen even if you move your screens around. Delete one of the apps in this panel. (press and hold then choose delete) It should then turn into a plus sign. tap that icon, then choose "app drawer icon"

I tried deleting apps in the panel as you suggested but I am not getting an option to do so. Also I tried to uninstall but not able to that as well(may be because all of them are basic functions like call, messages, contacts etc.)

When I long press home screen, I get an option to add existing application as shortcut but app drawer is not present in the list of applications. If I try to long press one of the icons in dock panel as suggested by "revanthchdg", nothing happens. I don't even get an option to delete.

What other choices do you see? I ask because every launcher does it a bit differently.

App drawer got replaced with MStore icon. I dont remember how this happened. Finally fixed by clearing the cache and data of MStore app from Manage Applications. This restored my App drawer in dock.

Thanks all for helping
