In my view you cannot get exemption.

Dear Sir,

Exemption has been granted to the following vide Notification No.9/16-ST dated 1.3.16 amending Notification No.25/12-ST.

(v) in entry 13, after item (b), the following items shall be inserted with effect from 1st March, 2016, namely -

“(ba) a civil structure or any other original works pertaining to the ‘In-situ rehabilitation of existing slum dwellers using land as a resource through private participation’ under the Housing for All (Urban) Mission/Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana, only for existing slum dwellers.

(bb) a civil structure or any other original works pertaining to the ‘Beneficiary-led individual house construction/enhancement under the Housing for All (Urban) Mission/Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana;”;

I have not gone through terms and conditions of contract/agreement. You may examine the contract whether the activity is covered under this notification or not.

You may see whether you are

I have difficulty in interpretation that all 15 house will be purchased by different 15 families in that way is it called a single residence unit constructed for one family ? and exemption can be claimed ?
