You can add new column using below code. replace (your-texanomy) with your taxonomy slug. I have tested and its working fine. https://prnt.sc/qbibg0

#add header before category name
function taxonomy_custom_column_header( $columns ){

    $columns = array_slice($columns, 0, 1, true) +
    array("cat_id" => "ID") +
    array_slice($columns, 1, count($columns) - 1, true) ;

    return $columns;
add_filter( "manage_edit-(your-texanomy)_columns", 'taxonomy_custom_column_header', 10);

# add value to newly added column
function taxonomy_custom_column_content( $value, $column_name, $tax_id ){

    if ( 'cat_id' == $column_name ) {
        $content = $tax_id;
    return $content;
add_action( "manage_(your-texanomy)_custom_column", 'taxonomy_custom_column_content', 10, 3);

    The answer works as you say yourself @NarenVerma, the ID is visible on the category listing. What you now suddenly also want is it be shown on the post type listing, which is another(extra) question. Perhaps you open a new question with this as question.

    There is no doubt, it works as asked, what you want now also is a little more 'complex'/different. Question for new topic could be: How to display the Cat ID on a custom post type listing
