• Construction of grills in stilt parking

I have booked a flat in Dec 2015 by making an agreement which is not registered in court and made a payment of 20% of the entire sale value to the promoter. The CC of the building was obtained in July 2016 and I registered the property in Aug 2016 by paying the stamp duty and registration amount. I payed the remaining 80% of flat value through a bank loan after registry. The promoter is now asking for payment of service tax for the property although I have done registration of the same after CC. 
Is it legal to do so ?

1. Well,even if the registration is done liability to pay ST a does not relinquish.

2.So before making payment ask the developer to furnish the ST Registration certificate.

3.Once it shows and puts a claim in writing then only make such payment..

Once stamp duty and registration is being paid to the Government, ownership of the property devolves upon you and no service tax or GST will be given this time after purchasing of the same. Service Tax or GST is only applicable during sale transaction not after that.

1. The title of your query and the actual query are distinct. Be that as it may, the execution of sale deed does not absolve you from the liability to pay the service tax.

2. Obtain the ST registration number of the builder and if it is furnished then pay the ST.

No need to pay such taxes at all as they can’t ask for it

Any service tax or any other taxes should have been collected by the builder at the time final settlement and registration

He cannot claim any such thing at a later stage especially after a year or so.

You can refuse to pay him, let him go to the court which can be challenged properly

He knows that no case is maintainable but he tries to extort money as much as possible by such means
