Hi @vivek pratap singh, welcome to the Community!

I've run a git gc on the remote and the size has decreased from 1.5 GB to 570.5 MB. This is a normal behavior and it often happens that the remote size differs from the local, due to some operations that git performs in the background. Our system performs automated gc from time to time, but if you need it sooner you can always contact us and we'll do it for you :)

Best regards,
