Does Promiscuous mode add any value in switch environment ?

Only if the switch supports what some switch vendors call "mirror ports" or "SPAN ports", meaning that you can configure them to attempt to send a copy of all packets going through the switch to that port.

See the "Switched Ethernet" section of the "CaptureSetup/Ethernet" page of the Wireshark wiki.
