In my view, it is important to see the supplier of service and the receiver. PQR is the receiver in this example and accordingly it is liable to pay tax under RCM.

We note that the provision of director services is not itself a taxable activity for GST purposes. This means that a professional director who personally provides director services should not be subject to GST on any fees received, no matter how many directorships the person accepts.
