1. Whether service tax paid by a service receiver of a good transport agency could be claimed as an credit while payment of excise duty by the same service reciever ?

2. whether VAT could be setoff against CST or vice-versa ?

3. Whether any manufacturing company who is liable to pay excise duty could avail credit of service tax paid in case of input services viz. telephone, courier, etc.
