In my view, yes the ITC of the tax paid @ 18% can be claimed.

In this scenario, A is not safe in the eyes of law. Rather, the supplier is also subject to penalty. No person can collect and pay tax on his own volition. Tax (whatever kind of tax may be) has to be paid as per law and proper procedure has to be followed.. Instead of tracing out case law, better option is that the supplier should issue credit note to the buyer and seek refund of that amount of tax from the department.

In pre-GST regime, SCNs were issued to the person who availed such credit. Even in the GST regime also, under Section 155 of CGST Act, the burden of proof is cast upon the person who avails ITC. This very section would suffice to issue SCNs to both the persons i.e. the supplier and the buyer.

So why to invite trouble unnecessarily ?

He can take ITC @12% even though the language in Section 16 is :

(1) Every registered person shall, subject to such conditions and restrictions as may be prescribed and in the manner specified in section 49, be entitled to take credit of input tax charged on any supply of goods or services or both to him which are used or intended to be used in the course or furtherance of his business and the said amount shall be credited to the electronic credit ledger of such person.

Here charged means: mentioned in the Tariff

Sh.Himanshu Shekhar Ji,

Yes. I add as under "Here charged means mentioned in tariff" but read with relevant notification either reducing the rate mentioned in tariff or granting exemption from the rate of tax mentioned in tariff.
