Negative List of Services

  • The services not under the negative list will attract 12 percent service tax.
  • The services that comprise the negative list include those provided by the government or local authorities, except a few specified services where they compete with private sector.
  • The list also includes pre-school and school education, recognised education at higher levels and approved vocational education, renting of residential dwellings, entertainment and amusement services and a large part of public transportation including metered cabs, and agriculture and animal husbandry.
  • The negative list concept is practiced globally and is proposed to be introduced in India as part of the goods and services tax (GST) regime.
  • Movement towards the negative list will result in reducing nearly 290 definitions and descriptions in the Act to 54, and the exemptions from the existing 88 to 10
