• Works contract service to Jawahar Navaday Vidyalaya

My client has has rendered works contract service to Jawahar Navaday Vidyalaya . He has not collected any service tax on the the bill and nothing was mentioned about service tax in the contract agreement. Now whether  Jawahar Navaday Vidyalaya is a government authority and service tax payable on the Work ?
                                                                                   Susanta Roy
Asked 1 year ago in Service Tax from Shillong, Meghalaya

Jawahar Navaday Vidyalaya is a govt incorporated body under HRD Ministry

Thus service tax not levy due to exemption notification 25/2012

Hi Susanta,

Your case is debatable, but you have a good case.

I believe that the case of the department will be that the Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti is an autonomous body. But the argument in your favour will be that the Chairman is the Union Minister and that it is funded by the Central Government.
