GST Interstate VS Intrastate Supply
Differentiating between interstate and intrastate supplies is of immense necessity in determining IGST, CGST, or SGST. Interstate supply attracts IGST while intrastate attracts CGST and SGST.
The following criteria categorize supplies under the interstate, based on the GST Act:
- Supply between two different States or Union territories
- Supply between a State and a union territory
- Supply of imported goods into India until the customs station is crossed
- Supply of goods or services to or by a Special Economic Zone Developer or Unit
Products and services under these criteria are those within the same state or Union territory exclusively.
