Input Tax Credit needs to be matched with GSTR-2A while filing GSTR-3B. Total unmatched credit shall not exceed 20% of eligible credit available in respect of invoices or debit notes the details of which have been uploaded by the suppliers.

For instance, the actual credit available to a registered person is Rs.1500, but the credit as per GST-2A is Rs.1000. Then the total credit that can be claimed shall be Rs.1200 (Rs.1000+20% of Rs.1000) instead of Rs.1500. This step has been taken to curtail the bogus credit being availed by certain taxpayers.
