I had purchased a flat in ulwe mumbai for around 60 lakhs. Agreement Value 49 lakhs. Did my registration on Sept 2016. The service tax plus VAT the builder asked to pay me was 2.33 lakhs in cash. Which I had paid him. I didn't ask for any receipt. So he adjusted that money into some other of his expenses.
Now after 1 year he is handing me over the possession but hes saying he hasnt paid my service tax and VAT yet is asking me to pay GST(only applicable after july 1st 2017) which is 12%. He's saying I had not paid complete Service Tax n VAT at that time. So Instead of 2.33 lakhs he’s asking me to pay around 4.88 lakhs of GST.
Since I didn't ask for service tax and VAT receipt I don't have any proofs to show up.
Please help me with the technicalities of understanding this. Is this a legitimate claim by the builder or am I just being fooled around by the builder?
Thanks in advance for any help.

1) It wasn't a ready to move in flat. It was under construction in Sept 2016 when I purchased. I'm getting the possession now in April 2017. Took time to get the OC for the building.
2) He didn't pay VAT n Service Tax at that time. He's saying he missed to pay it. He's asking me to pay for GST now to take possession.
3) Hes asking me to pay 12% of 49 lakhs agreement value i.e 5.88 lakhs now.
4) Bank had paid 44 lakhs loan amount to him in 2016 October. Only 4 lakhs pending to be paid now by bank.
Please contact me on 9175594059 for any questions.

Yeah I don't have any proof. I also think he has also paid Service Tax and VAT by himself but trying to pocket more money from me by taking GST since I don't have any proof of payment. Is there nay way I can find whether he has already paid my TAx and still asking me more.
Also I thought GST is only applicable for amounts/payments paid after July 2017. I have done 90% payment before July 2017. Only 4 lakhs remaining now to be paid. So is GST even applicable on entire amount??
