ITC on lorries is allowed. Prior to 1.2.19 it was covered under Exclusion clause of blocked credit under Section 17(5) (a) (ii) of CGST Act " For transportation of goods". W.e.f. 1.2.19 blocking of ITC was relaxed by way of omitting the words, "other conveyance'. Vide CGST Amendment Act, 2018. Lorry is covered under 'Other Conveyance'. To clarify further legal position before 1.2.19 and after 1.2.19 are to be compared:

Section 17(5) of CGST Act w.e.f. 1.2.19

(5) Notwithstanding anything contained in sub-section (1) of section 16 and sub-section (1) of section 18, input tax credit shall not be available in respect of the following, namely :-

[(a) motor vehicles for transportation of persons having approved seating capacity of not more than thirteen persons (including the driver), except when they are used for making the following taxable supplies, namely :-

(A) further supply of such motor vehicles; or

(B) transportation of passengers; or

(C) imparting training on driving such motor vehicles;

(aa) vessels and aircraft except when they are used -

(i) for making the following taxable supplies, namely :-

(A) further supply of such vessels or aircraft; or

(B) transportation of passengers; or

(C) imparting training on navigating such vessels; or

(D) imparting training on flying such aircraft;

(ii) for transportation of goods;

(ab) services of general insurance, servicing, repair and maintenance in so far as they relate to motor vehicles, vessels or aircraft referred to in clause (a) or clause (aa) :

Provided that the input tax credit in respect of such services shall be available -

(i) where the motor vehicles, vessels or aircraft referred to in clause (a) or clause (aa) are used for the purposes specified therein;

(ii) where received by a taxable person engaged -

(I) in the manufacture of such motor vehicles, vessels or aircraft; or

(II) in the supply of general insurance services in respect of such motor vehicles, vessels or aircraft insured by him;

BEFORE 1.2.19 Section 17(5) of CGST Act.

(a) Motor Vehicles and other conveyances

(ii) for transportation of goods.

Both phrases "Other conveyances' and 'transportation of goods' stand omitted w.e.f. 1.2.19.

Also see the legal definition of 'lorry' . Prior to 1.2.19 ITC was allowed under clause, 'transportation of goods' and w.e.f. 1.2.19 ITC has been allowed by way of deletion of the phrase' other conveyances' from blocked credits of goods and services.

RESPECTED SIR, I AM EXPECTING WHAT IS THE STAND FOR VEHICLE REPAIR SPARES AND SERVICE ITC

W.e.f. 1.2.19, the scope of availing ITC on Motor Vehicle has been widened. With the deletion of the words, "other conveyances' from the blocked credit, there is no restriction or condition on other conveyances. 'Other conveyances' includes dumpers, work-trucks, fork-lift trucks and other special purpose vehicles. Other Conveyances are for Specific Purposes.

Conditions mentioned in 17(5)(a) are not applicable for other conveyances, these being for specific purposes.

Thus in my view ITC on lorries for repair, maintenance, service and general insurance is allowed.

Agree with Kasturi sir, credit will be eligible now. Though ensure that the projects for which the lorry is used is not under 5% and also ensure that required credit reversal is done as per rule 42 at the end of the project.

I also agree with the views of Sri Kasturi Sir. The ITC on lorry is allowed and that of its repair expense as well.
