According to Explanation of Sl. No. 14 (a) "the services by way of construction, erection, commissioning or installation of original works pertaining to monorail or metro, where contracts were entered into before 1st March, 2016, on which appropriate stamp duty, was paid, shall remain exempt."

In my opinion you please obtain in writing that the principal service provider entered into contract before 1St March 2016 and appropriate stamp duty had been paid by the principal contractor. You should obtain this letter from the principal contractor through your customer (sub-contractor) so that you can defend your action in future when you face the Departmental/CERA Audit.

Contract executed before 1.3.16. Hence entitled to exemption from ST vide Notification No.9/16-ST dated 1.3.16. (Serial No. 14 (a) with Explanation.This Notification amends Notification No.25/12-ST. You have received copy after 1.3.16, it does not matter.

3 Dated: 11-2-2017

Please provide us with the date of execution of the contract to revert you.
