Hey Puja,
Currently, if you use a formula field in a workflow trigger criteria, a change in the value of the formula field does not count as a record edit, and will not kick off the workflow. What I would like is to have an option to evaluate formula field values, and if a change is detected to kick off the workflow actions. 

You can't fire from a formula change, but there is strange path. Workflow rules fire on EVERY change (every edit and where eg. CreatedDate not blank). And this do a field update of the formula field into text field (or number or date, whatever matches). On the field update check the box that it will re-fire workflow evaluations. Now you should be able to do your Process Builder (or other Workflow) of the text field. It should work.

Hope this helps you to solve your problem.
Thanks,
