GST is a destination based tax or a consumption-based tax. Thus the place of consumption will decide the state which will liable to collect taxes under GST.

This principle seeks to tax the goods and services at the point where consumption takes place rather than the point where it is originated.

The idea behind introducing the destination-based tax is to provide the benefit to the consuming states in the form of a share of the revenue.

For Example, If an in Mumbai produces the goods and sells the goods to B in Jaipur, then in such case the tax should be levied and collected and should accrue on the goods in the State of Jaipur and not in the State of Mumbai[1]. The revenue in the case of destination-based taxation belongs to the place, where the goods are finally consumed and not to the State where the goods are produced.

Difference between Destination Based Tax and Origin Based Tax:
