Batch wise report qty is correct but stock level of item shows awaiting qty

I expected the batch qty of an item to be 16 and the batch wise report qty shows this number correctly.
However when i query the item and look up the stock level, it shows 13 as actual qty and 3 as awaiting qty.

I have no pending WO or material request etc for this item

Incorrect Balance Qty After Transaction report also shows the “difference” qty as 3.

How can i correct this and what is the cause of this ? Any pointers would be appreciated.

Under what circumstances will the record show up in this report ? (Incorrect balance qty after transaction)
