    sir

    i recently purchased an under construction appartment flat with 1110sqft area
    for which land value is 41000
    cost of construction is 1221000

    for which i paid service tax by cash to builder 69000
    he is telling that 5.6% s. tax on total construction value

    till now he is charging 3.5% to others who registered by june
    but after june he is charging 5.6%
    is it correct or not?

    why this much confusion to every builder they are also not having any data
    thanks

    Dear Srevathi, VAT and service tax ‘ll be applied as a %age on your cost. the service tax is 3.09% of your cost other than land.

    Thanks
