i have removed the top layer of existing vinyl flooring, which is set on concrete.

the vinyl backing is firmly attached to the concrete.

do i have to remove this to install ceramic tile ?

Try soaking it with some hot water and scraping it with a wallpaper scraper. It should be removed as you want the thinset to bond directly to the cement floor, not a veneer of something over top of the floor.
