Hi, 

Is it possible to sync the users added in Azure AD to my on-premises AD.

 

Thanks in advance

Hi siyadnaushad

User write-back from AAD to AD is not possible
This was a feature in evaluation some time ago but has cancelled and not deployed
That said, depending of your needs there maybe the option to create the user account in AD with the same UPN/email address and use the match feature of AAD Connect to match both accounts and merge them (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/hybrid/how-to-connect-install-existing-tenan...)
