    Replace the webpage with something else (with the exact same URL), then make sure it's re-crawled and re-indexed.

    The next time: best not to post something that you'll regret afterwards

    Oh mate, I guess it should be some better and permanent solution for this. That is not a solution because some time we need to remove our old updates and promotions so it should be some solution? Keep on eye here some experts must help me and yours too.

    Assuming this is your domain... go to Google Webmaster Tools > Google Index > Remove URL

    then

    Fetch Googlebot to the URL immediately after.

    It'll be gone in a matter of hours.

    The Google Webmaster Tools option may work but:
    - only on Google
    - I don't trust it.

    Personally I'd have a dummy page ready, with something like: "this promo code is no longer valid" or something, maybe even with a "robots/noindex" meta tag in the head section and a clever little sitemap on the page itself. And then replace the original page's html with that. Next time it would be crawled, it would be the new dummy page that's shown to your visitors. You'd still get the visitors, and could choose to herd them to somewhere else on your website

    And if you added the meta tag, the page would probably be removed from ALL search engines' indexes, not just Google.

    But hey, try the GWT option if you like.

    P.S.:
    ... I have added rel=nofollow tag ...
    What were you hoping to achieve with that?

    If Chuck is suppose to do something but doesn't know it's his turn he will sit as a couch potato for years until you let him know... Googlebot is like that to,,, until it recognizes that the page URL isn't suppose to be indexed anymore (because being included is preferred) it won't actually do the task of "un-indexing" until it happens to comes across the URL on its own or more quickly when you point it out.

    After using google removal tool, you must use following options. Otherwise it will not permanently removed.

    Block the url from search engine bots using any of the following method

    - robots.txt

    or

    - Adding following meta tag in the page

    <meta name="robots" content="noindex">
    Hope this will help you.
