Why do you want to remove them? Do you want to delete the issues or move them to another parent? 

In my opinion, issues should not be deleted, when they are done. Close them, so you can always see, who and when someone worked on them. 

Hi thomas actually i want to see only subtasks in open,inprogress only by avoiding the closed subtasks automatically from parent issue is it possible without deletion

In the Jira view, there is an option to show only open subtasks:


without clicking on the show open there is any automation rule to show the substaks in open and inprogress status


is it possible to remove the closed substaks from parent issue

without deletion of the closed Sub tasks


Please see Thomas' answer and follow-up, those are the functions available to you.
