but I'm getting "Chapter I", "Chapter II", so I want to remove the word "Chapter" from the title and also from the TOC.

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. Reproducing the problem and finding out what the issue is will be much easier when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. (The class you use might impact the answer.) – ebosi May 23 '17 at 18:33
