Hi Sonal,

we can't hide that attach file in notes and attachments,

but  we can overcome this problem with visualforce page.

Sonal naik,

you can,but thats not  the best practice,because sf html may change without any notice.

create an component add that component to layout or detail page.

in the component write a  JS to hide that button.

Hi Sonal

Override the contact detail page with a VF. Here is one sample. You may need to customize it based on your specific requirement.
<apex:page standardController="Contact">
  <apex:detail relatedList="false" />
  <apex:relatedList list="Opportunities"/>
  <apex:form >
    <apex:pageBlock title="Notes & Attachments">
     <apex:pageBlockButtons location="top">
         <apex:commandButton value="New Note" action="{!URLFOR('/002/e?parent_id=' + $CurrentPage.parameters.Id + '&retURL=%2F' + $CurrentPage.parameters.Id)}"/>
              <apex:variable value="{!0}" var="cnt"/>
    <apex:repeat value="{!Contact.NotesAndAttachments}" var="item"><apex:variable value="{!cnt+1}" var="cnt"/></apex:repeat>
    <apex:pageBlockTable value="{!Contact.NotesAndAttachments}" var="item" rendered="{!cnt > 0}">
        <apex:column headerValue="Action" styleClass="actionColumn">
              <apex:outputLink styleClass="actionLink" value="{!URLFOR('/' + + '/e?retURL=' + $CurrentPage.parameters.Id)}">Edit</apex:outputLink>
              <apex:outputPanel > &nbsp;|&nbsp; </apex:outputPanel>
              <apex:commandLink styleClass="actionLink" action="{!URLFOR('/' + + '/e?retURL=' + $CurrentPage.parameters.Id)}" onclick="return confirm('Are you Sure?');">Del</apex:commandlink>
        <apex:column headerValue="Type">{!if(item.isNote, 'Note', 'Attachment')}</apex:column>
        <apex:column headerValue="Name">
            <apex:outputLink value="{!URLFOR('/' + + '?retURL=' + $CurrentPage.parameters.Id)}">
        <apex:column headerValue="Last Modified By" value="{!item.lastModifiedBy.Name}"/>
    <apex:outputText value="No records to display}" rendered="{!cnt = 0}"/>

  <apex:relatedList list="Cases"/>
