It observes that applicant undertakes preparation of such printed material as per customers specifications and designs, for which it procures  all requisite material and thereafter, transfers the title in printed advertisement materials.

Accordingly, concurs with applicant that being a movable property, such material falls within the ambit of ‘goods’ u/s 2(52) of CGST Act and resultantly, does not become ‘service’ as defined in Section 2(102).
