is it possible to call COBOL program in mainframes on a click from web without CICS intervention.
If yes then is there any reference manual or related documents to understand it better.

Yes, you can use CGI (Common Gateway Interface) code to connect the web page to the mainframe. Google z/os cgi programming to get about 1,250,000 hits and several on the first page will help you. Depending upon which version of z/OS you're using, you may be using the HTTP Server that used to be delivered with z/OS, or you may be using the Apache HTTP Server on z/OS. If the latter, start reading IBM HTTP Server - Powered by Apache. If you are not sure which is being used, you MUST contact your site support group to find out.
