Am I need to remove URLS from Sitemap which has No-Index Tag?

Hi All,


When I crawled my site on Ahrefs, it is showing some errors.


In that majority of the links which has No-index tag. 


It is showing we require to remove the links from the sitemap.


Is it mandatory?

Is is mandatory, no it's not mandatory.

But it is wrong.... let me explain.

If you have pages marked "no-index" it is obvious you do not want them being crawled.  By having the url in the sitemap you have specifically said - "crawl these pages".

Take the urls out of your sitemap  - best advice !

Good advice?
