i am having low disk space issue on C drive of symentic backup exec 2012.\

I checked that a 90 G of space is consumed by

C:\Program Files\Symantec\Backup Exec\Catalogs

So please advise what to do to make a space free.

is it safe to delete the job from job history and this history is not required for any purpose by backup exec to backup and restore

History is not needed,  If you need to restore something you need to do an inventory and catalog first.

And so... you need to ask yourself how much time you have to restore.  Do you have time to do an inventory and catalog?  Or do you need access to files right away?

If you can't (or may not be able to) afford the time to do a proper inventory, you'll want to move your catalog to somewhere else (some other drive or partition), not just delete it.  If you do delete it, I recommend you tell BE to put it somewhere else, and rebuild your catalog as soon as possible.
