I need clarification on how scheduling record is done.
Scheduling can be done at level of portion and at level or MRU.
If scheduling is done at level of portion then the same schedule is followed by all MRUs in the portion.
The scheduling at portion level is overwritten if scheduling is present at MRU level.
Is my understanding correct?

Your assumptions are not entirely correct. As said in the previous post, the portion and MRU complement each other. There is NO overwriting...
Look closely at all the dates in the portion and the MRU. Read the F1 help of each field, the help files and the info in SPRO. There's a LOT of good documentation.
A very brief summary of the difference between a portion and a MRU:
Controls Billing and Budget Billing dates
Divides the region (installations, POD) based on the MOMENT of billing/meter reading (eg: january, february, etc...)
Controls meter reading dates (including planning of MRU, sending of MR notices, etc)
Controls meter reading types (optional) (always by MR company, alsways by client, etc...)
A MRU is a subdivision of portion, grouping the region in geographical units (or sometimes logical units)
Be aware that SAP recommends not to have more than a couple of thousands of PODs per MRU, for performance reasons
Hope this helps you on the way!
