and b.unit = a.unit
in the subquery raises this issue...

so, you need to add the unit column into the group by, or remove it from the conditions in the subqueries

and as unit seems to be a fixed value, adding it to the group by seems the simplest here:
select a.dob,a.dname,
(select sum(b.gamt) 
from sale_item b where b.dob = a.dob and b.unit = a.unit and b.dname = a.dname) all_sales,
(select sum(c.gamt) 
from sale_item c where c.dob = a.dob
and c.unit = a.unit
and c.period = 2
 and c.dname = a.dname
) noon_sales
from sale_item a
where a.dob > = '07-aug-13' and a.dob <='28-jun-14' 
and a.unit = '2001'
 and a.dname IN ('Fri','Sat')
GROUP BY a.DOB,a.dname, a.unit
order by a.dob;

everything comes from the one table (or view) so there is no need for the correlated subqueries that I can see
SELECT
      a.dob
    , a.dname
    , SUM(a.gamt)                              AS all_sales
    , SUM(CASE
            WHEN a.period = 2 THEN a.gamt END) AS noon_sales
FROM sale_item a
WHERE a.dob >= '07-aug-13'
      AND a.dob <= '28-jun-14'
      AND a.unit = '2001'
      AND a.dname IN ('Fri', 'Sat')
GROUP BY
      a.DOB
    , a.dname
ORDER BY
      a.dob;
