Place of supply of goods, where the supply does not involve movement of goods, regardless of whether by the,

  • provider, or
  • recipient

Should be the area of such goods at the time of conveyance to the recipient.

Example- Where a man buys a T-shirt from a shop, supply is finished at the shop itself when the T-shirt is conveyed to the purchaser and the cost is paid. For this situation place of supply would be resolved under sub-section 3 of section 5 i.e. supply of goods that does not involve movement.

Since viable conveyance in products has as of now been passed at Delhi itself place of supply might be location of goods where conveyance has been given i.e. Delhi for this situation.

At the point when products are of such nature which does not require any movement, place of supply shall be location of such goods.

Example - Bharat Limited enlisted in Maharashtra sold its pre introduced transmission tower (electric tower) situated at Madhya Pradesh to Hindustan Limited enrolled in Delhi.

For this situation, location of provider is Maharashtra yet place of supply will be Madhya Pradesh. Hence,IGST will be exacted.

Other cases where no movement- job worker making capital goods for the principal but himself uses for making goods for the principal.
