@Ajinkya_Deshmukh Download the PDF, if its in native format, use “Read PDF Text” activity, else use "Read PDF with OCR activty to read the PDF content. The output will be of data type String.
Do string manipulation or use Matches activity with regex pattern to match the value you want to retrieve. This will give you the required values.

You can follow watever @Madhavi has mentioned, if it is not readable PDF and your OCR results are bad then go for relative scrap.
