Greetings VishalMishra,

Thank you for using Apple Support Communities. It seems like you are trying to delete a backup of your iPhone but it is not able to at this time. Is this a backup in iTunes or in iCloud? If it is an iTunes backup, is it on a Mac or a Windows computer? There are a couple ways available that you can try to delete the backup. I would recommend you read these articles and use them to help troubleshoot the issue.

iCloud: Remove an iOS device backup from iCloud

Locate backups of your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch

Take care.
