I have a website running on one droplet and my domain settings was on Digital Ocean DNS and its all working fine. I made a new website on different droplet machine. I have changed A record of my website to this new IP of droplet machine but it takes more than 48 hours, but still it points out to my old droplet machine IP...

I don't understand what was an issue ? Usually DNS update records at 12 hrs maximum as its already have name servers of digital ocean just change the droplet machine IP but it didn't happen

Our nameservers are set up with a very low TTL so DNS changes should be nearly instant. If you can share the domain name you're having trouble with I'd be happy to take a closer look.
