How to rollback Teams Exploratory license to MS Office 365 E3

Hi, Greetings!!!

I have a bulk of 100 MS Office 365 E3 Licenses in one license consumed by Teams Exploratory. I want to roll back that license, but in the Admin Center, it's not showing while removing it. So I want to remove that Teams Exploratory License and set it to MS Office 365 E3.

If anyone knows please help me with that.

    Hello @Ramu Vankala,

    after the first user in an organization signs up for Teams Exploratory, the subscription is activated and available for the next 12 months. After the Teams Exploratory license expires, there is a tolerance period of 30 days during which one should update their subscription accordingly. After another 30 days, the assigned Teams; OneDrive and Sharepoint data will be deleted. The licenses can be assigned and administered via the Microsoft 365 Admin Portal. This requires a user who has the appropriate permissions.

    For more information about Microsoft Teams Exploratory license, you can also refer to the following documentation:
