Dear Sirs,

Mr. Prabhat Pandey is of the opinion that it will attract IGST and as per Mr. Prasant Bisoyi it will attract GST.

Dear Nimesh, whether we can consider this as an Intermediary Service or not?

As per section 2(13) of IGST Act, 2017“Intermediary” means a broker, an agent or any other person, by whatever name called, who arranges or facilitates the supply of goods or services or both, or securities, between two or more persons, but does not include a person who supplies such goods or services or both or securities on his own account.

As per Your Query , yes you cover 100% under Intermediary Services.

What is Intermediary Services ? In term of Section 2(13) IGST Act , Agent, Broker who arranges or facilitates the supply of goods or services or both between two persons without material alterations or further processing.
Thus Intermediary is involved with two supplies at any one time :
(a) supply between principal & the third party : and
(b) supply of his own services to his principal for which a fee or commission is charged.

So commission income in term of Section 7 is supply , hence it is taxable in GST & The applicability of CGST/SGST or IGST for Intermediary services is prescribed in Section 13(8)(b) of IGST Act which states that Place of supply for intermediary Services is Location of Supplier of Services, hence CGST/SGST is applicable.
