Vat and service tax on flats

Page no : 2

Dr. MPS RAMANI Ph.D.[Tech.] (Scientist/Engineer)     19 December 2011

You may be able to get the information from the State Government Department where registration for vat is done, if necessary, through an application under RTI.

Did you not ask the builder why is he not disclosing his registration number?  What does he say? If you are sure that he is unreasonable, you can go to the Consumer Forum.

Thank you all especially the angel who couragepusly tread :)

Now the latest news is that serviuce tax has been set at 1% of remeinder amount payable after July 2010. That is heartening.

However, the Vat issue remins. Calls to the builders office receive responses which show that they are totally unaware of the latest 20th jan 2012 HC order concerning ST>


Second, they yet maintain that Vat is 5% of the agreement value for flats purchased before April 2010. After that period the rate is 1%. Therefore for those like me we have to shell out a whopping amount .. something like 7 laksh if the State does not come utt and clarify why the previous Vat should be more than the latest and the fact is that the matter was taken to court because of this huge amount of unjust taxation.


can somebody help in the matter please?
