STEP03   EXEC SAS                                             
SAS.WORK DD  UNIT=(SYSDA,59),SPACE=(CYL,(2500,2500)),         
             DCB=(RECFM=FB,LRECL=904,BLKSIZE=0,DSORG=PS)     
INFL01   DD DSN=TEST.N001,         
            DISP=SHR

         DISP=(,CATLG,DELETE),

         SPACE=(CYL,(100,100),RLSE),                         
         DCB=(RECFM=FB,LRECL=130)                             
SYSPRINT DD  SYSOUT=*

And what does this have to do with JCL?

You have an X'00' somewhere, so you need to find it, and then find out it got there.

Since the input file you posted:
DATA IN01 ;                                               
                                                         
INFILE INFL01  LENGTH=RECLEN;                             
INPUT @01  NIKESH             
does not match the SAS input file:
1          DATA IN01 ;                                                         
2                                                                               
3          INFILE INFL01  LENGTH=RECLEN;                                       
4          INPUT @01  ELGBLBIT_REC                                             
WARNING: A line of input contains one or more null (hexadecimal 00) characters,
either NIKESH is being changed by some process before the job executes (in which case you need to find out what is changing it and fixing the hex '00' characters being generated), or NIKESH is a SAS macro (in which case you need to find the macro source code and fix the hex '00' characters being generated). Either way, the source is at your site and you will have to find and fix the problem since we don't have access to it on this forum.

got the issue.. actually I was using hyphen ' - ' in field names, but special characters are not allowed in field names defined for SAS except underscore '_' , I just changed all the '-' with '_' and its working now..

Thanks Robert, Billy and Prins.. :)
