What will be the effect if we have paid
(i) Integrated tax instead of Central tax and State tax / Union territory tax?
(ii) Central tax and State tax / Union territory tax instead of Integrated tax?

Under section 19(1) of the IGST Act, 2017 “a registered person who has paid  integrated tax on a supply considered by him to be an inter-State supply, but which is subsequently held to be an intra-State supply, shall be granted refund of the amount of integrated tax so paid in such manner and subject to such conditions as may be prescribed”.

Under section 19(2) of the IGST Act, 2017 “a registered person who has paid Central tax and State tax or Union territory tax, as the case may be, on a transaction considered by him to be an intra-State supply, but which is subsequently held to be an inter-State supply, shall not be required to pay any interest on the amount of integrated tax payable”.
Therefore, in case a registered person has paid Integrated tax instead of Central tax and State tax or Union territory tax, then he shall be granted refund of the amount paid as Integrated tax and he will have to pay Central tax and State tax or Union territory tax.

Further, no interest will be payable on the Central tax and State tax or Union territory tax so paid. Further, in case a registered person has paid Central tax and State tax or Union territory tax instead of Integrated tax, then he shall be granted refund of the amount paid as Central tax and State
tax or Union territory tax and he will have to pay Integrated tax.

However, no interest shall be payable on the Integrated tax amount so paid.
