Reset a Quota in Linux


I want to reset a quota in linux. I dont want to set its softlimit, hardlimit or grace period by edquota command.

I want, suppose one user has 100 mb quota and I dont to incrase or decrease its quota but what I want is to totally reset that user's quota like it get start from 0.

Is it possible to reset quota in linux if yes then how?

Thanks in advance.

What do you mean with reset the quota?

Do you want to disable the quota or change the limit?
