In case there is a task in IDM which has two levels of approval to be completed and if first the approval goes to the managers and then to the administrators for approval which needs to be completed for further process. If the manager itself, who is an approver requests for the same activity the approval should be skipped for him and should automatically go to the next level of approval.

This can be done by transition script.  As perase suggested, can use policy based workflow as well

You can create a workflow process that has a server automated transition that will bypass an approver if a custom script detects that the next approver in line is equal to the task's primary object (and add a small comment that an automatic self approval took place).

This functionality was indeed requested by our clients. Something ootb/configurable to implement this would be appreciated.

You could probably achieve this today with policy based workflow.

Check if the requestor is the manager of the requestee

If so, then start a one step approval process which routes the approval to the "second level" approval group

If not, then start a two step approval process and first route the request to the user's manager
