    Hi vikas,

    There is no soql command to delete rows directly. What you can do instead is to create a list with all the accounts in your org and then delete that list.

    For example:

    list<Account> acc = [SELECT id FROM Account];                                                                                                 delete acc;

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Vikas,

    You may use Batch Class to delete all records of Account sobject.

    For Example :-

    Global class BatchMassDeleteRecs Implements Database.batchable<sobject>{
    global final string query;
    global BatchMassDeleteRecs(string q){


    global Database.QueryLocator start(Database.BatchableContext BC){

    return Database.getQueryLocator(query);
    global void execute(Database.BatchableContext BC,List<SObject> scope){
    delete scope;

    global void finish(Database.BatchableContext BC){
