1. On LO's share the developer is liable to pay to the department. If the agreement has a clause or if the LO agrees, this can be collected from the LO as well.

2. Open market value of the service provided to the LO.

3. For this liability, sale of units before or after OC has no relevance.

3. We need to see the Point of Taxation here. The PoT in such cases is governed by Nofn.4/2018-GST dt.25.1.2018 which was applicable prior to 1.4.2019. Accordingly, the question of exemption on LO's share of flats may not arise.

Sir, Development agreement dt is 8/2017 and first sale of flat was made in 3/2018 pertaining to Land Owner's share for ₹ 2800000/- ( 838 sq ft) . per sq ft rate is ₹ 3341/- . Total sq ft allotted to Land owner is 4190 sq ft and the total consideration for 4190 sq ft comes to ₹ 13998790/- . Wheras if we take actual sale deed value of all the 5 flats ( each measuring 838 sq ft ) sold in different months upt 9/2018, total consideration comes to ₹ 12050000/-. In this regard, please clarify whether value of first sale of flat nearer to Development agreement is to be adopted for the total area allotted to the Land owner or actual sale of values of the flats is to be taken for payment of tax. And also clarify when does the liability to pay tax arise for the Land owner in the above whether it is Development agreement date or actual sale deed date . Please clarification is requested on the above points.

Liability of developer arises only when completion certificate is obtained. See Notification No.6/19-CT(R) dated 29.3.19 (Clause D).

Sir, please tell me about valuation as requested for in my previous queries

10 Dated: 28-1-2021

In my view, value of similar flats charged by the developer/promoter from the independent buyers nearest to the date of on which development rights are transferred to the promoter, is applicable.
