you can use powershell  script for transfer user from one group to another


Powershell code


Import-Module ActiveDirectory
$Group_BUsers = Get-ADGroup Group_B -properties members | Select-Object members | % { $_.Members}
$Group_CUsers = Get-ADGroup Group_C -properties members | Select-Object members | % { $_.Members}
Get-ADGroup Group_A -properties members | Select-Object members | % { $_.Members} | % {
    if(!($Group_BUsers -contains $_) -and !($Group_CUsers -contains $_))
    {
        Add-ADGroupMember -Identity Group_B -Member $_
        $_
    }
    }

In AD users and computers console, create new query with this definitions:

Custom Search
Field
User
MemberOf
Condition = Is Exactly
Value = Distinguieshed Name of Group

After you have list of users members of this group, only need to select all, right click with mouse and Select option Add to group.

This is the simple way.
