Hi Pradeep,
That message is saying you must specify the density map.  I.e. if the atomic structure is model #0 and the density map is model #1, the command could be something like

vop cover #1 atom #0

Command usage and options:

Elaine C. Meng, Ph.D.                       
UCSF Computer Graphics Lab (Chimera team) and Babbitt Lab
Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry
University of California, San Francisco

P.S. it is recommended you send Chimera questions to chimera-users at cgl.ucsf.edu instead of to me directly - thanks!
