You can add a M.2 SATA SSD to your notebook, not a NVMe one.
Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook.
Chapter 1 has the supported drive types. Only SATA M.2 SSD's are supported, not NVMe.

You're very welcome.
Yes, it is disappointing but you would have been more disappointed if you bought a NVMe SSD without coming here first. 😊
Also, bear in mind that NVMe M.2 SSD's run much hotter than SATA ones because of their much faster read/write speeds.
That could cause issues too. If the drive goes over 70 C, most of them have a built in throttling mechanism that slows down the drive to cool it off.
In other words, your notebook has to be designed to handle that excess heat.
I recently bought a Crucial P5 M.2 SSD for my Dell desktop PC. All I was thinking about was the speed.
When I checked the drive temps, I couldn't believe my eyes. I had to buy a heat sink to add to the SSD to keep it running cooler.
In most cases you wouldn't be able to add a heat sink to a SSD in a notebook because of the lack of space.
A SATA M.2 SSD will still be very fast.

No bro , i haven't purchased it of yet . But I am wanting an ssd only for reducing the booting time which is greater than 1.30 mins on 1tb HDD and to load the apps faster . What's the difference between app loading and booting time between an m.2 nvme ssd and m.2 sata ssd ? I will go for the 250 gb variant. Can u please add the exact time experience fot the above puposes on both the ssds ?
Note - i don't want to use an ssd for storage purposes.

There is no point in discussing the difference between a NVMe drive and a SSD drive's boot times for your PC.
If you were to install a NVMe SSD in your notebook, it wouldn't boot up, or the NVMe drive wouldn't be recognized in the BIOS.
What I can tell you is that a SATA SSD should decrease your notebook's boot time from 1:30 to around 25 - 30 seconds at the most.
I like the NVMe SSD I have, but I have to admit that it is not leaps and bounds faster than a SATA SSD as far as boot times are concerned.
The NVMe may have shaved a few seconds off the boot time from the 2.5" SATA SSD I had in my Dell PC previously.
This SATA M.2 drive provides the best performance for the price in the USA, in my opinion, but in India it is a little more expensive.
$45 in the US
3,474 rupees (47.50 USD).
