In this post we will discuss how we can remove duplicate web part from a SharePoint 2013 web part page. Recently we were working on a migration project from moss 2007 to SharePoint 2013. We use first database upgrade approach, from moss 2007 to SharePoint 2010 and from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013. But we use a 3rd party tool to migrate the delta data using the tool. Then we notice that for some pages the tool keep on adding duplicate web parts to those pages.

This will display the web part maintenance page, you will be able to see the web parts presented in the page, type of web parts and what are the web parts presented (Open) in the page.
It should looks like below:
Now whichever web part you want to delete, select the web part and then click on Delete button as shown in the fig below.
Then click on OK, and you will not be able to see that web part.
Hope this will be helpful.
