The diswasher is standard 24 inces wide. How much additional space do we need to make the hole to fit in. Please help.

The exact size of cutout needed to install a dishwasher into should be explicitly stated in its installation instructions. Have a look at them.

Generally, a "24-inch" dishwasher is designed to go into an opening that is exactly 24 inches wide. The appliance will be slightly narrower (e.g. 23-5/8). Appliances are always built fractionally narrower than some round number (also microwaves, ranges, fridges) so kitchen layouts can maintain precise alignment from wall to base cabinets. American cabinets come in 3-inch width increments, so you could have a 24-inch wall cabinet directly above the dishwasher and any adjacent wall cabinets would still be perfectly aligned with base cabinets below.
