I am unable to restrict confluence page

I am getting below error message when I try to restrict the page. Please advise.

You're not allowed to change these restrictions. It's either due to edit restrictions on the page, or permissions settings for this space.

Hi @Pravin 

welcome to the Confluence Atlassian community forum. 

To answer your query, there are 3 levels of permissions in Confluence: Global, Space, Page

As per your scenario, I think you should recheck the "space permissions"  (Assignable permissions for each space) for that user. These links would assist you with the same:

Hi @Pravin ,

Add restrictions gives you permission to apply page-level restrictions to a page or blog post. You can restrict a page for viewing, or just for editing.

Hi @Pravin 

  Are you the administrator?

  Probably if you are not, you have restrictions on your own permissions to perform that operation, if so, you will have to speak with the administrator to grant you said permission
