First of all i am asuming you know how to create module [If not please check This ]

You can remove a tab using the method Mage_Adminhtml_Block_Widget_Tabs::removeTab(). Every edit page in Magento (admin side) is actually child block of Mage_Adminhtml_Block_Widget_Tabs block class.

To remove tab you have to create extension for that and obsever


As a start up

File : app\code\community\Keyur\RemoveCategoryTab\etc\config.xml


Now create observer file

File : app\code\community\Keyur\RemoveCategoryTab\Model\Observer.php

class Keyur_RemoveCategoryTab_Model_Observer


public function removeUnwantedCategoryTabs(Varien_Event_Observer $observer)
    $tabs = $observer->getEvent()->getTabs();
    return $this;


Where group_6 is tab id [You can check by inspecting element

And see the magic.

Let me know if you have any query


Not the best but simple way, use below property in your CSS :

#category_info_tabs > li:nth-child(3) {
    display: none;
  • Thanks for your answer, but i am expecting code level restriction.
