What does the scholars and jurists say about a situation where the Imam forgets the takbeer after recitation and remembers it after Ruku in the Eid prayer, what will be the ruling?

                             In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

                                 As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

In that situation he should say takbeer in Ruku without raising hands, do not do Qiyam for saying Takbeer and according to rule sajda-e-sahw is compulsory but in the Eid prayer, due to risk of distraction because of abundance of people sajda-e-sahw is excused.

فی التنویر وشرحہ: ''(کما لو رکع الامام قبل أن یکبر فان الامام یکبر فی الرکوع، ولا یعود الی القیام لیکبر) فی ظاھر الروایۃ، فلو عاد ینبغی الفساد۔''                                                 (الدر مع الرد:2/174)

وفی الخانیۃ : ''والسھو فی صلاۃالعید، وصلاۃالجمعۃ،والمکتوبۃ، وصلاۃالتطوع سواء،ومشائخناؒ قالوا: لایسجد للسھو فی العیدین والجمعۃ؛کیلا یقع الناس فی الفتنۃ۔                                (الخانیۃ بھامش الھندیۃ:1/186)

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
