    .Invoicing for Movement of Goods on Approval Basis
    Government has clarified that registered persons can take the challan route to transport the goods within the State or outside the State in relation to supply of goods on approval basis. It is clarified that person will first issue the challan and as soon as the supply if fructified, it will issue a tax invoice charging appropriate GST.
    It may be note that the clarification relates to goods on approval basis. Thus, the fact pattern needs to be analysed carefully before taking the benefit of this Circular.
