Could anyone help me know the utility or the code snippet in JCL or COBOL(preferably in JCL if possible) to get the date of creation of the latest version of a GDG file

You need to use Access Method Services (AMS):

Code:

//STEPXXXX EXEC PGM=IDCAMS                                         
//SYSPRINT DD   SYSOUT=*                                           
//SYSIN    DD   DATA                                               
  LISTCAT ENT('THE.GDG') ALL         
or
  LISTCAT ENT('THE.GDG.G0001V00') ALL     
/*                                                                 


'THE.GDG' can be either the base entry, in which case you will see the details for all of the generations, or the specific generation you want to check.
