I have assigned a bounty for a question asked by another person, but would it be possible to revert back that action so that I can remove the bounty

Once you have assigned a bounty to a question you can't remove it. Hence the confirmation popup.

Once you assign a bounty, that rep is gone forever. Actually, that's not strictly true; a diamond mod can refund the bounty if you have a valid reason (or if they feel like it). It's probably likely that you don't (and they won't), though.

It would have been more like, hey I made a mistake and gave a bounty can I revert it back within say a few minutes of that. Its possible that no one has viewed it so far. –  Joshua Jun 24 '10 at 10:54

@Joshua: you could always flag the question for moderator attention and try your luck. It's a bit hard to "accidentally" add a bounty though, there is the warning and everything ;-) –  Andy E Jun 24 '10 at 10:59
