We are in dispute with our builder who has neglected maintenance of our building and also has not formed society for several years. Recently he asked all flat owners to pay 5 % VAT on agreement value as per the MVAT ruling for underconstruction flat between 2006 to 2010. Many including me have paid the VAT amount (more than 1.5 lakhs) as ordered by the builder and we also asked him to disclose his VAT registration details, issue of receipt, method of calculation of VAT and reason behind it but he straight away mentioned in the letter that he is not obliged to disclose these details. Question is we being the one who is paying the VAT can the builder withhold such details? We feel that the builder has paid as per construction material cost calculation while he is charging us VAT on agreement value. Can we file an RTI and get the details? We are in process of approaching the consumer court for deficieny in service.
