I need to remove a URL from Health -> Fetch as Google in Google Webmaster Tools.

Is it possible?

There is no option on the screen and the help file doesn't mention it, so no.

is possible to contact Google support to remove URL? – Haridharan Oct 12 '12 at 5:41
You could use the Webmaster forums productforums.google.com/forum/#!forum/webmasters. Why do you want it removed? The fact that you've asked them to crawl it once doesn't mean they will index it. – paulmorriss Oct 12 '12 at 8:14
I made some mistakes in url. That is the reason why I am asking.. – Haridharan Oct 12 '12 at 12:05
That tools just lets you check a particular URL. If the URL is wrong then it won't work, but no harm is done. – paulmorriss Oct 12 '12 at 13:19

You can't remove an url from the list. Like paulmorriss said, there is no harm in simply trying again if you made a typo error in the URL. You get your 500 fetches reset once a week.

You can use this tool to fetch up to 500 URLs a week per Webmaster Tools account https://support.google.com/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=158587

If you want to remove an url from the index then when you are in Webmaster Tools go to Optimization > Remove URLs and follow the instructions.

Welcome to pro webmasters. This looks like a good faith attempt to answer the question. However, it is very short and needs some grammar improvement. It also says essentially the same thing as another answer. Can you edit your answer to expand upon it? – Stephen Ostermiller Feb 10 '14 at 10:40

You can simply block the url which you coded in FETCH AS GOOGLE.

Welcome to Pro Webmasters. This answer is not high quality because you do not explain how to block the URL. I'm also not sure what you mean by "coding" a URL. Please edit your answer to expand and explain. – Stephen Ostermiller Jul 16 at 12:28
I am with Stephen. This answer requires more. – closetnoc Jul 16 at 16:50
