Hence care should be taken about those items which are being received later i.e. after 31 July 2017. Also in such cases details of such transactions are to be given in e..g.name of supplier, description of value, quantity etc in TRAN 1,

3) TRAN 1 total credit will be reflected in PMT-2 i.e. Electronic credit ledger,
