Hi Sumaiya Vhora,

There are two ways to delete duplicate task, as per your requirement your workflow rule create duplicate task so my question is that your workflow rule is active now and it wil work regularly so for this you can use :

1) Batch class and in this batch class create a list of task in which you can fetch all duplicate task and delete those list and shedule this class at every day 12 am or as per your time.

2) If you want to delete duplicate task only once then you can use anonymous code in developer console and in this code same fetch the all duplicate task in the list of task and delete those list and exceute the code from the developer console.

You might checkout DupeTools from IOLITE on the appExchange - it has an audit function that will do auto-merge.
