The firm has collected an amount of ₹ 100/- per square feet from their customers towards maintenance of plot at the time of sale of plot. Thus advance amount was received towards maintenance of plot (immovable property) which was taxable under the category of "Management, Maintenance or Repair Service" defined under Section 65(105)(zzg) of the Finance Act.. As per Rule 3 of Point of Taxation Rules, 2011, the point of taxation was the date of receipt of such advance.

Emphasis is on maintenance and not on development of plot.
