Please advise
I am encountering error when I try to run following procedure--

CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE REMOVEINDEX
AS
BEGIN
--Altering Indexes
EXECUTE IMMEDIATE 'alter table T1 drop constraint PK_T1';
exception
raise_application_error(-20024,'fail at PK_T1');
end;
EXECUTE IMMEDIATE 'alter table T2 drop constraint PK_T2';
exception
raise_application_error(-20025,'fail at PK_T2');
end;

Error is as follows--

7/1      PLS-00103: Encountered the symbol "RAISE_APPLICATION_ERROR" when      
         expecting one of the following:                                        
         pragma when                                                            
         The symbol "pragma" was substituted for "RAISE_APPLICATION_ERROR"      
         to continue.                                                          
                                                                               
8/1      PLS-00103: Encountered the symbol "END" when expecting one of the      
         following:                                                            
         pragma when                                                            
                                                                               
15/1     PLS-00103: Encountered the symbol "RAISE_APPLICATION_ERROR" when      
Thanks

You are missing a when clause to the exception.  Assuming you want to raise the exception for all errors, this should be what you are looking for.
CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE REMOVEINDEX
AS
BEGIN
--Altering Indexes
EXECUTE IMMEDIATE 'alter table T1 drop constraint PK_T1';
exception
when others then
raise_application_error(-20024,'fail at PK_T1');
end;
EXECUTE IMMEDIATE 'alter table T2 drop constraint PK_T2';
exception
when others then
raise_application_error(-20025,'fail at PK_T2');
end;

That won't work either.  You are missing some begins as well.
CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE REMOVEINDEX
AS
BEGIN
--Altering Indexes
  begin
    EXECUTE IMMEDIATE 'alter table T1 drop constraint PK_T1';
  exception
    when others then
      raise_application_error(-20024,'fail at PK_T1');
  end;
  begin
    EXECUTE IMMEDIATE 'alter table T2 drop constraint PK_T2';
  exception
    when others then
      raise_application_error(-20025,'fail at PK_T2');
  end;
end;
