For example:
Philip Private Limited is registered in Chennai and has ITC available on IGST of Rs. 2,00,000. Philip had purchased glass from Sriram works in Chennai for manufacturing products like tube lights, lamps etc. and paid a tax of Rs 1,00,000 on the purchase of glass. The ITC for this will be divided between SGST and CGST (Rs. 50,000 each), since it is a same-state purchase. Philip then sold these products for Rs. 10,00,000 to Ultra Lighting Limited in Bangalore. Philip had a tax liability under IGST for Rs 1,80,000 on this sale to Ultra. Philip used Rs. 50,000 from its available ITC (under IGST) to discharge a part of the tax liability of Rs. 1, 80, 000 under IGST. The rest was paid by net banking. In this case, Rs. 50,000 would be debited under the head IGST. The amount of ITC available under CGST, SGST and IGST would be Rs. 50,000, Rs. 50,000 and Rs. 1, 50,000.
