I know that we can use noindex, nofollow and robots for excluding the pages from Google Index. This process takes a long long time to clean up website from Google Index. In Webmaster Tools => Index Status => Advanced => Ever crawled, How can I remove the Ever Crawled Pages by Google.

Ever Crawled is just a graph showing the amount of your pages Google has looked at over time. You can't remove it - either in the sense of clearing the graph or somehow using it as an alternative to noindex etc.

The only reliable way to remove content from the index, other than completely taking it down, is to use various means of robot control like noindex. I'm not sure why you think such measures are unacceptably slow; in my experience that isn't the case.
