If you wish to specify a group you must also specify the owner, so if the original owner is "root" use

 create 0644 root Group_A

Please not that with the above "others" (i.e. users who are neither owner of the file nor members of Group_A") will also be granted write accesss, so specifying the group (and the owner) is somehow unnecessary.

To deny access for others use

create 0640 root Group_A
