Hi Srivani,

What service tier are you trying to upload to? It is usually my suggestion that you upload to a P2 or P3 and then after everything is migrated, set your service tier to the level you would like. Also note that you need to be targeting Azure SQL DB v12. Also, have you tried just your schema and make sure that it migrates correctly?
