Hi @lavanya j ,

You cannot rename standard, out of the box fields in JIRA. This includes filelds like Summary, Description, Labels, Versions, etc.

There is a New Feature request to better handle this, as tracked in

You can translate it into other languages, or directly hack the language file you are using (which leaves you unsupported), but I would recommend that you do not waste your time on it.  It's going to take a bit of effort, but also confuse people who have used Jira before and make supporting it more difficult.  I can't think of a good reason to change it, "summary" is the right word already.
