Hey, I am unaware of any specific parameter that lets you resize an already attached volume. But You can use the command module to execute a CLI command and change the elb volume size.

 - name: resize elb volume
      command: >
       aws ec2 modify-volume --volume-type io1 --iops 10000 --size 50 --volume-id vol-11111111111111111

Many Thanks Kalgi. I will check and update you.
Cool, let me know! :)
i have tried kalgi. But its creating 8 gb harddisk and attached to that instance as /dev/sdf secondary volume in that instance. Can't we resize same volume ? kalgi. below is my playbook. its confusing too. but its creating 8gb harddisk and it attache to same instance as secondary disk (/dev/sdf).

- hosts: localhost
  connection: local
  become: yes
  gather_facts: no
    region: us-east-1
    az: us-east-1c
    volumesize: 8
    instance_id: i-xxxxxxxxx
    - name: To Get Volume-Id
      command: "aws ec2 describe-volumes
                --region us-east-1
                --filters Name=attachment.instance-id,Values=i-xxxxxxxxxx Name=attachment.delete-on-termination,Values=true
                --query 'Volumes[*].VolumeId' --output text"
      register: volumeid

    - name: To Increase a Volume Size
        instance: "{{ instance_id }}"
        region: "{{ region }}"
        #id: "{{ volumeid.stdout }}"
        zone: "{{ az }}"
        volume_size: "{{ volumesize }}"
      when: volumeid.stdout!="None"

i tried lot. But i will try again and however find the solution .
