Thanks for the response. What I understand by this is that by using
target(RelayState) parameter we are passing the landing page url at SP but
it depends on SP side whether they choose RelayState parameter as
indication of where to land user or not. Some SP can use it and some may
not  depends on SP. Please let me know If I am wrong
