Hi Ronak, 
Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support. 
We have created a simple sample for adding textbox value to PDF document in Xamarin platform. The generated output PDF documents are stored in the following locations. 
            if (Android.OS.Environment.IsExternalStorageEmulated) 
                root = Android.OS.Environment.ExternalStorageDirectory.ToString(); 
                root = Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.MyDocuments); 
            Java.IO.File myDir = new Java.IO.File(root + "/Syncfusion"); 
            Java.IO.File file = new Java.IO.File(myDir, fileName); 
            string path = Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.Personal); 
            string filePath = Path.Combine(path, filename); 
                StorageFolder local = Windows.Storage.ApplicationData.Current.LocalFolder; 
                StorageFile outFile = await local.CreateFileAsync(filename, CreationCollisionOption.ReplaceExisting); 
                using (Stream outStream = await outFile.OpenStreamForWriteAsync()) 
                    outStream.Write(stream.ToArray(), 0, (int)stream.Length); 
Here we have using dependency services for storing the PDF files in each platform (Android, IOS and UWP), so you can change your storage location by using the dependency service Save method. Please refer the below sample for more details. 
Please let us know if you have any concern.
