Generally Index used in SQL server to improve performance.Sometime we never use some Index's but it present in Database which can be one of the reason of performance degradation.
 Below query will give the list of all unused index in Database with DROP statement.
Query to get list of Unused Index's

SELECT o.name AS ObjectName , i.name AS IndexName

, i.index_id AS IndexID, dm_ius.user_seeks AS UserSeek

, dm_ius.user_scans AS UserScans, dm_ius.user_lookups AS UserLookups

, dm_ius.user_updates AS UserUpdates, p.TableRows
