Hello @HarishKumarMettu-0271 - Welcome to Microsoft Q&A community forum!

Since you have selected Instant restore points to be 2, the answer should be 2. However there are chances that you will see 3 as our Garbage collection services takes 24 hours to cleanup old restore collection points. If you are seeing any number higher than 2 then you should check if there is any lock on the resource group (RG) which is stopping cleanup of stale restore points.

What about "Retention of daily backup point: 7 Day(s)"
That retention is applied for the backup on Vault, this Backup1RG will only store restore points collection .

Hope this answers your question!
