    I have checked with builder. HE had the completion certificate allready.

    So I don't need to pay service tax and vat.
    Why not VAT ( 1%) ? It has nothing to do with completion certificate.

      Leakage is always a problem for top floors. In my building in Mumbai there is constant work on to fix the leaks.

        Ya let's see what happens related to leakage? May be your mumbai building is an old construction.

        May be I have to pay VAT, but no need to pay service tax thats sure.

        Still I have saved on Service tax.

          If CC is there, you need not pay ST but VAT of 1% on agreement value will be there irrespective of the constro status. However, check if the builder can pay from his own pocket, it would just mean a discount of 1% to you.
          If you are happy, you are successful.

            I hope after spending so much of hard erned money I will not face such issues.
            Hi Gharpune - Regards the problem with heat in a top floor flat:
            One of my friends lined the entire ceiling with thermacole & also did a POP (plaster of paris) false ceiling 3" or 4" below this. He says the results are amazing - hardly any heat gain from roof slab to room below. (The POP contractor suggested this & also did the entire job). Maybe you can try this?
            Thanks,

              If CC is there, why is he taking 3 months for possesion?

                  Hi gharpune, since you are getting immediate possesion maybe you can give feed back on the heat problems you actually face/dont face? This topic was much discussed in NOIDA forum and actual user input was lacking - only speculation

                    Good suggestion. Certainly need to be tried out.
                    Has any body have a good solution for leakage problem. This will help the boarders.

                      Most of the leakages take place due to poor slopes & poor plastering (hardly anyone puts up tiles on the terrace). If the slope is properly directed towards the drain, the leakage reduces coz the water doesn't stay too long & doesn't seep in directly either.

                      If it still persists, use Dr. Fixit. It has to be applied on the terrace where leakage is present.
                      If you are happy, you are successful.
