Is it possible to Delete a member in a PDS? I know this is possible using idcams.
I tried TSO DELETE , But it's failing when i tried to delete a member in a PDS. But works fine for a PS.

DELETE is the proper TSO command. It will delete a member from the specified PDS. If you are using it and seeing an error, you'll need to post that error for any further assistance.

As an alternative, since you're working with a PDS, you might want to start using and familiarizing yourself with the ISPF Library Management (LM) services. There is the LMMDEL Service for deleting a member of a PDS.

You must have the PDS named on a DD card in the IDCAMS step, then
 DELETE    PDS.NAME.HERE(member) FILE(ddname)
