Hi,

As the START and RETURN both are used in transaction initiation, what is the difference between these 2 commands.

In which scenario we use RETURN.

Thanks in advance

These commands (and all others) are documented in the applicable CICS manual, with clear explanations.

Have you reviewed the manuals?

RETURN is NOT used in transaction initiation. It's used in termination.

Start initiates another transaction at the same time as the current transaction is executing.
Return can start another transaction after the current transaction completes.
TRANSID(name)
specifies the transaction identifier (1-4 characters) to be used with the next input message entered from the terminal with which the task that issued the RETURN command has been associated. The specified name must have been defined as a transaction to CICS.
