In case of payment made till March 2019 you would not be eligible to 1 per cent GST 



From 1st April 2019 Under-construction properties priced up to 45 lakh will now be treated as affordable housing projects and will attract 1% GST without the ITC.

3) Although the cap on the price of affordable houses is 45 lakh for both metro and non-metro projects, the carpet area requirements differ. Only those flats with the carpet area of 60 square metre in metros (Delhi-NCR, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Mumbai-MMR and Kolkata) and 90 square metre in non -metros falling under the 45 lakh cap will be eligible for the 1% GST rate.

Rates at the time of booking shall apply. Flat was booked in 2018 and hence the old rates shall apply.

Residential projects which are incomplete as on March 31, 2019, will have the option either to choose the old structure with ITC or to shift to the new 1% rates for affordable houses. No relief.

The GST on under-construction flats, which is not under the affordable housing segment, has been reduced to 5 per cent without ITC from earlier 12 per cent with ITC.

If you have not taken over the property and no registration has been done yet, you may avail this benefit.
