As Jan mentioned in this answer, you can just set the Data property with the required array. You can load the current content to a variable, add the column you want, and write it back to the property. After that, you can (re-)specify any setting you would like.
If this answer doesn't solve your problem, please attach your code with the paperclip icon. You should also show the desired end result.

Ahh.It works.Thank you for the example. But in the code you defined the checkboxes being false.If i want to make it editable. I say this ...because when i run the code and i try to tick the boxes.I am not able to do that.

You need to edit the ColumnEditable property.
clear handles
handles.f = figure(99);
handles.table_Grounds = uitable(handles.f,...
'Position',[0.1 0.1 0.8 0.8]);
data_Grounds = get(handles.table_Grounds,'Data');
data_Grounds(:,end+1)=num2cell(false(10,1)) ;
IsEditable=[false(1,size(data_Grounds,2)-1) true];
