    Hi Vishal,

    The answer to this is: It depends.

    Please refer to the following documentation:

    You can set up the replication instance in a Region in which the primary database instance is running or in a DR Region. If you are only migrating or replicating a subset of data using filters or transformations, you should keep the replication instance on the source side, because the amount of data transferred over the network to the DR Region is less.
