Like the transactions are broadcasted to the bitcoin network , is it required that locally generated addresses also need to be boradcasted to the bitcoin network ?


No, you can generate trillions of addresses (private keys) and the rest of the network don't need to know about them until you make transactions to each of them.

  • Is this means that Suppose i have generated the address locally and now i want my friend to send me coins then is that means he can send me directly ? or my locally generated address will be firstly added on blockchain ? Nov 3 '18 at 12:53
  • @PankajKumar You should send your address to your friend, e.g. via message/SMS
