Screenshots would help here.

Re: About formula

If the timescale is set to Months then the formula would be ITEM(TIME), not ITEM(MONTH).

 

Or are you using a fake timescale called MONTH? If so you need to map it to numbers in a module to use operators like <=.

 

You could also explore switchover if you are using Anaplan versions, though the switchover month would be the same for everyone at all times which may not be the case for your current month selector. 

 

I agree with @Misbah that screenshots would help here.

Good to know it is resolved.  Quick question, may we ask why you are using a custom timescale and not Native Time?

Re: About formula

As per my client business they want time scale as split week level..so its not possible in Native Time ..

Not sure I understand split week level, but Anaplan can absolutely have models at the week level, 445, 454, and 544.  I am asking because it will save you a lot of time using Native Time.  If you have to use fake time, I would still use native Time for all of my calculations and then fake time for reporting.
