    In all the new buyer's agreement, Service tax is clearly indicated. Yours might be around 6 months old wherein the service tax was either not there or just started.

    Yes, as a concept service tax should be applied when someone renders services e.g. construction activity. If the construction is happening on the plots that the builder/ contractor doing the construction should (as per law) charge a service tax.....But there should be no service tax just on the allotment of plots.....beucause in this case it becomes a case of simple purcashe and sale and rendering of services

    EDC+IDC for G99 is 3627 per sq yd and for amtoria plots its 4400 per sq yd .

    In appartments i guess it varies from 250-380 something per sq ft !!!

  • I got a letter from DLF saying that service tax is now based on 100% weightage.

    They have sent a letter saying that DLF has paid the remaining 75% on my behalf and is now being recovered from me.

    Is this the new norm now? 100% weightage on PLC for service tax?

    Is it only DLF or other builders also?
