Hello Rohit,
IDCAMS DCOLLECT D Type records have information of all cataloged and uncataloged generations.

If you are dealing with only 1 GDG,
1. Perform a IDCAMS DCOLLECT "to get only D type records"
2. browse the output file and do a FIND ALL 'GDG BASE NAME'
3. manually find the generations that are in DCOLLECT but not in ISPF 3.4 dataset list.

So you can get uncatalogued generations list.

And CONGRATULATIONS for asking about generations (and not versions).

You saved many members serious angst.
