I am using company-mode for word suggestions.

In company-mode, when I use C-h instead of deleting a character it says No documentation available.

I have added following lines to .emacs, which did not solve it.

(add-hook 'after-init-hook 'global-company-mode)
(with-eval-after-load "company"
  (define-key company-search-map (kbd "C-h") #'company-search-delete-char))

Your setting looks valid, but since it is not doing, what you expect, you probably changed the wrong keymap.

exchange your (define-key... line by:

(define-key company-active-map (kbd "C-h") nil)

if you have set up your emacs to normaly delete chars with C-h

(define-key company-active-map (kbd "C-h") #'backward-delete-char)


Note: you can still access the help feature of company by using F1 key.
