While writing the cover letter, the \makeletterclosing automatically adds \enclosure at the end of the page. Is there a way to reduce the space between Name and the \enclosure information.Reduce this space

At last it depends on your used \moderncvstyle.

For example if you use \moderncvstyle{classic} the command \makeletterclosing is defined as:

\renewcommand*{\makeletterclosing}{
  \@closing\\[3em]%
  {\bfseries\@firstname~\@lastname}%
  \ifthenelse{\isundefined{\@enclosure}}{}{%
    \\%
    \vfil%
    {\color{color2}\itshape\enclname: \@enclosure}}%
    \vfil}

In your case you need to delete \vfil and add a little space after the signature like:

\makeatletter
\renewcommand*{\makeletterclosing}{
  \@closing\\[3em]%
  {\bfseries\@firstname~\@lastname}%
  \ifthenelse{\isundefined{\@enclosure}}{}{%
    \\[1cm]% <==========================================================
    {\color{color2}\itshape\enclname: \@enclosure}}%
}
\makeatother

Change the value 1cm in \\[1cm] for your needs ...

With the following compiling MWE (please add one to your next question by your own)
