What is GST State Code?

Our country India consists of 28 States and 8 Union Territories, so in the GST system, each state is allotted with a two-digit numerical code which will help to identify the business entity.

The first two digits of GSTIN represent the state code in which the business entity is registered under GST law and carrying out his business.

When do we need State Code in GST?

GST state code is mostly needed in the following cases:

• To check where the business is registered. The first two digits of the GST Identification Number denotes the State Code in which the taxpayer has obtained registration. For example, the State Code for Delhi is “07”, So GSTIN will be written as “07XXXXXXXXXXXXX”.

• To decide whether IGST or SGST/CGST will be charged. If the code of the seller is the same as the code of place of supply, CGST and SGST are charged. If the code of the seller is different from the code of place of supply, IGST is charged.
